Postcard from Washington, DC: The Birds

Back by the Capitol, a sudden Hitchcock moment! I shot blindly (camera screen glare), hoping for the best.

A truly magical photo. Tippi and Aussie Rod Taylor were great in The Birds.

Hitchcock'ish indeed, hope you made it home peck free?! Great shot!

Andy said...

It's amazing that after all these years that Hitchcock is still in our subconscious.

PS: I like the new look of your blog.

What you really have to fear comes from the rear end of the birds. I recall a moment like this a few years ago and when returning to the car it was totally covered in bird excrement. Took me a good couple of hours to clean it off.

This is a gorgeous image Lulu, apart from capturing the flock of birds so well, he light is just gorgeous. Was that a 'villain' I saw lurking behind the tree in the foreground...oh no it's just a shadow phew!!

Nice capture. I've have had more than my fair share of Hitchcock moments when out shooting.

I'm impressed.I've often tried to photograph flocks of birds but it is a whole lot harder than it looks. this is really good.
