towering above

Starlings

gather in an

out-of-the-way

place

viewing the world,

passing on gossip

and sometimes

getting in a

brief raucous scuffle

over nothing

in particular.

catching up on the news

I was out test-driving my camera this morning and decided to see what it would do if I tried taking pictures of the starlings on top of the electric tower. I can barely see them with the naked eye (the birds, not the towers) although I knew they were there by their squawking and screaming. It’s kinda thrilling to have a machine that can capture a picture of something you can barely see. I know I still need to work on exposure etc. and I also know that while this camera is good, it still makes things that far away a little grainy but it is so much fun to play like this!

I really like the juxtaposition of the big geometric shapes made out of the linear steel bars and the little curvaceous beings that hang out on them.

    1. Yes, starlings are annoyingly wonderfully raucous. This was actually a small amount of them, there are days when the tower is covered…hopefully I will be able to capture that picture as well!!!
      Somehow adapting to a power line does not instill me with confidence of their intelligence… 🙂

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
