Almost Sideways

A lucky shot. It almost looks as though the rock dove isn’t moving in the sense that it could be falling in the position it is in due to being very still, or frozen, or something. The way the rock … Continue reading

Legs and Wings

I think I was really lucky with this photo. I really like the clarity in this shot as it helps with the focus on the rock dove’s form. I think the clarity also helps to make the rock dove feel … Continue reading

Rock Dove in Motion

A photo of a Rock Dove flying from one location to another. It was likely over a short distance in which the rock dove was flying. I probably could’ve gotten a better shot. I think the contrast might be a … Continue reading

One Cleans the Other

A photo of two rock doves. Taken around the same time as the other two recent bird photos. I think that this is a nice, pleasant a small photo. It’s a small thing that’s happening and as such it feels … Continue reading
