Birds

I was all excited the other day because it was sunny and I was finally going to get to go out and shoot. Then the fog rolled in.  So I decided to just do a camera walk around the neighborhood and see what I could do with the fog. The first thing I saw where these birds on the power lines so I just went to do a grab shot and one of the birds started to fly away. Well, there is a school of thought that photography is about capturing a moment in time and this image surely does that.  Since it was already close to monotone I went ahead and took it to full black and white by removing the saturation.  I also cropped it to put the flying bird at the power point and eliminate some other birds.  I like the simple graphic look of this image. I like that the two birds on the wires are facing in opposite directions and I like the diagonal lines. But it is the bird in flight that makes the image for me.
