The Bird Watcher

By gilad

Let me take a fly with you
Across the sky, slicing out small clouds

Let me go high where my problems look small
I should close my eyes but I see for the very first time

Let me get some air beneath my human wings
The wind throwing me where my mind never been before

Let me take a fly with you
Just for once take me with you, your bird watcher


This was taken near Cassis, situated on the Mediterranean coast, about 20 km east from Marseille, France.
I was driving around the French Riviera when I was visiting Marseille for an exhibition I did there. I noticed this guy standing on the ledge while driving so I pulled out the car. While getting closer a flock of birds escaped my footsteps and while surprised I was able to capture that, and it gave the frame a beautiful dynamics. I converted the frame to B&W and toned it a bit.

Wow. This is a really awesome print!! I love the movement of the birds and how everything else is solid. And how it's black and white but the plants look like there may be a hint of color. Nice job! :)

sparrows are my favorite to watch, they are so full of joy. seagulls that float on the wind like kites are a very close second.
