Prayer Flags

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Today, I was roaming the backyard considering where I might 'install' the bundle of papers to participate in The Altered Page's (Seth) project - The Disintegration Collaboration.
"Create a paper bundle, any way you like. Place said bundle in nature. Post a "before" picture on your blog. Watch and Wait. It is that simple. Each artist will then reveal the result in an "after" picture posted on their own blog on May 1. " Great plan!
Pictured above is a string of Tibetan prayer flags I had hung outside less than one year ago. I live in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada - known for being one of the, if not, the windiest city in Canada. It is a regular host to chinooks, which can often blow planes out of the air or overturn semi-trucks on highways.
Our summers are hot and very dry - considered a semi-desert climate, as evinced by the cacti and rattlesnakes! Although the after photo is due May 1 so I'm not counting on much heat before then. But, I've no doubt, based on the shape of these flags, the wind will each leave their mark on my bundle.

You already have your own disintegration project going on with these flags. I like how they look!
