Finally finished this little project this week. All the images were taken within a few feet of my home. All were taken with my Original Lensbaby and post-processed in Lightroom. Bit of a fluke that turned into a longer project. “Heading South” was the first, found in January of 2011 (it was a very warm winter). I decided it would be fun to get all the cardinal directions with different birds.
- South–geese following the warmth
- West–a nighthawk screeches over the alley
- North–one of the crows on his way back into the city after a day of wandering. They straggle over our area as they return to their nightly murder….
- East–the pigeons that forever circle our street
Beautiful! Reminds me of the Lensbaby I have collecting dust and why it should be used more often! 🙂
Thank you! My ‘Babies don’t see as much light as they used to either (I’ve actually been using “normal” glass!) but then I haven’t been shooting as much with any lenses lately…too many irons in the fire.
The last picture ..thoughts of Psycho emerged…eerie nice
