I feel the same way as Wessel. The camera is draped around my neck and waits patiently for something to invade my eye.

If you go out with a camera and don’t find something to photograph, you are walking with your eyes or your mind closed. You don’t always make a great photograph, but looking at things, and trying different compositions through the rectangular boundaries of the viewfinder help you appreciate shape, form and color. These birds are a fine example of that idea.

Je comprends très bien la raison de ta démarche.
L’occasion d’une belle image en tout cas.

That quote makes sense to me. I always have my camera with me, and never know what I will come back with. Are your birds starlings?

I wonder what the attraction is that so many birds would gather in one place.

i remember some stephen king story that said when sparrows gather like that, it’s to take the soul of a recently departed to heaven… and when my husband’s father died, we were driving on the road and saw a TON of birds on the wires…. this is a beautiful picture, sister

It is always good to carry a camera – you never get the same image twice.

I suspect I would have counted the birds too 🙂

I love cell phones for this reason. I always have a camera when something catches my eye. I love this view of so many birds hanging out! It is a delightful silhouette.

A very crowded condominium.

Sometimes I regret leaving my camera home, true image must capture the eye, but you must also be able to capture it.

Birds benefit by flocking together, so why can’t people see the benefits of cooperation? Lovely photo of power lines and birds.

I always take my camera with me everywhere I go. I love seeing the birds sitting all together. It is like they are having a conference.

I’m so glad you’re still photoblogging Sherri, I’ve been out of the loop for a few years.

Great saying by Henry! Looks like this is popular real estate for the birds.
