The Icarus Bird


It’s pretty unusual to be street shooting with a little camera like the Ricoh GR and come away with a picture like this. This bird was one of flock of pigeons that came barreling over me while I was walking through the Boston Public Garden. Silhouetted against the sun, it created a fine center point. The snap focus feature on the camera made it possible.

    • Thanks Ronnie. I have to admit I never thought it would turn out that well.

  1. Aside from a dose of luck, the hardest part of a shot like this is takiing it quickly and spontaneously, rather than thinking about taking it. I’ve missed so many shots because I was “considering.”

I'd love to hear from you
