Here, lil' crow

I've been playing around with video on my phone, mostly shooting fragments of my son's life. Little fingers, gripping his blanket, his then tooth-less mouth grinning at me. A few years later, my much bigger boy dressed as Luke Skywalker, promising to hunt down Darth - in London :)

Lately, I've taken short clips of much loved jogging destinations. On one of these excursions, a startled crow gave me a talking to. Since then, I've recorded various types of suburban Corvid conversation. It's fun, it's great studio reference and it lets me dip into yet another medium that I admire. Here's a very shaky glimpse into how I get photos for my paintings.
