Ducks Take Flight

Early last month I was at Sydney Olympic Park, wandering about. I had the opportunity to take this photo and so I did. I was kind of hoping that they’d stay, but they didn’t. Oh well. This is my submission … 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

Gull Over River

This is an image of a silver gull flying over Cooks River. I don’t think that there’s anything particularly special about this photo, but I do like that it carries a sense of stillness more than it does a sense … Continue reading

Cockatrio

Similar to two photos I took last year. This feels a little less dramatic and smaller. The rock dove seems almost as though it has no legs. It feels like it’s moving through the air without moving its wings. I … Continue reading

Strepera graculina in Flight

I’m glad this photo turned out as well as it did in monochrome as it was rather unpleasant in colour. Shame the background isn’t a little sharper, but the pied currawong looks quite good, I think. The photo gives a … Continue reading

Movement Through Air

The same flock of rock doves as this one. I think this photo gives a strong impression of motion and form. I really like how there’s both the shapes of the individual rock doves, as well as the overall flock. … Continue reading
