I can tell, the shoulder of the bird is in the lower right corner...its dark colored indicating the back of the bird, these are lighter colored in the front...it's facing away and looking back

Is this Mc D just below an apartment - probably re-capture it when "less" or no clothes hanging in front the apartment wall Anyway, nice catch and this gives different look of Mc D. Well done

"Mastectomy is simply the removal of the breast."

oh lord k5683, there is nothing simple about it on an emotional scale as well as deciding to permanently changing your identity.

(I've been blessed to have met and been friends with several people who have been given the interesting aspect of being born inside a body that does not match up with their internal being)

Their lives are filled with so much heart break and pain, yet they reflect back a strength and beauty that is mind boggling. I'm thinking you should understand that this Scar was Not so much a CHOICE.. but more of the most dramatic if not painful contemplation a person has to go through to stabilize the ping pong game that is being played with their mind and overall personal existence.

The story behind the "SCAR" is so complex in this entry, and kudo's to the person who had to undergo such a hard and life changing decision. Hope the world understands some day, it just takes time

Scar from mastectomy
avatar k5683
k5683 says:

6tann, mastectomy is not necessarily from breast cancer. The first thing I thought of when I saw this photo was " ah that is so sad " and I had sympathy for a minute. But THEN after realizing what really was going on, I understood it was a choice to have this scar, not some horrible disease. Mastectomy is simply the removal of the breast.

this is a great looking shot! That much smoke already with so little of the tip burnt out is almost impossible. I have a wood stove so I've gotten pretty familiar with the strike of matches
