Here was Birds 4. Birds intrude on these fotos a fair amount just because they do. I usually don’t intend bird fotos, but like the second from bottom here, they happen and make intriguing juxtaposition. Vastly different proximity of bird and vessel sometimes makes for apparently huge birds and new ways of seeing, as in the fotos of Julia Fullerton-Batten.
But sometimes birds distract me from my usual subject. Indulge me and take two minutes to watch this two-minute vimeo called “murmuration,” starting out with two girls in a canoe on a lake in Ireland. If you’ve already seen it, pass it along to someone.
Here’s another shot of an osprey I included here about two months ago, third foto from last. To me this one suggests bird on fish like surfer on board.
All fotos by Will Van Dorp. And seriously, if you didn’t watch that vimeo . . . it’ll make your day. Thanks to Maureen for sending it my way. To me, it rivals the amazingvirtualreal sequences in Avatar, the movie. Here’s another bird/water video.
