Flight! A ten-shot series.
Lens: Various Camera: K7, K10D Photo Location: Various 
Posted By: CWyatt, 12-10-2010, 03:44 PM

Thought I'd post a little series I put together for the last publication of online doco magazine SEA Collectiv.

Whilst street photography normally focuses on human life, there is also a strong tradition of photographing the living creatures which share our urban spaces.

This series, Flight!, was born of both the street photography tradition and a reaction to the abundance of clear, colour nature photography circulating today.

I have preferred to depict common birds, in common human environments, with a view to showing that nature doesn't just exist in pristine or remote environments, but is part of everyday life.

These are outstanding photographs, Camus, and I appreciate your focus on urban wildlife. I couldn't agree more that the creatures who inhabit the spaces around us are very much under appreciated. You've opened the window on their lives and personalities. Well done.

you've got more patience than me.
