Fountain Fly-By

I was already pretty happy with the elements in this photo of a fountain in the People’s Park, Dun Laoghaire, when just as I went to take it a bird decided to perform a fly-by and – in my humble opinion – make the image a whole lot better.

Sometimes you just get lucky I guess. Click for the big version to get a good look at the little poser!

  1. watch the birdie! is this a test of suggestibility or sight? I cannot see the fly past but the detail in the images is stunning

  2. Nice capture – lots of detail and lovely in b&w

  3. Had to look hard to see the “fly by” but once I did, I agree, it adds something unique. Your photos are simply fabulous!

  4. Photo-bomber! Looks like a Mourning Dove. It seems to be looking back at you too, great shot all around. 🙂

  5. Love the sense of movement you captured with the water from the fountain – so pretty!

  6. Great shots. Very alive.

    I really do love your art. It gets me on a visceral level.

  8. Reblogged this on chaotiqual.

  9. Most of your pictures are b/w or sepia, is there any reason why?

  10. You truly are the photographer of movement…! A rare and great quality. Static images are so much easier to capture, but whenever I see a picture you took with any kind of movement in it, it just seems to come to life. Lovely.

  11. I love water stopped by the camera. Its like magic. Are you an art major or something? I’ve never heard of anyone picking up a camera & in the same year, shoot like he was born to do so.

  12. Thank`s for stopping by my blog. I also think that photography is an international language, thats why i try to explain my blogs with pictures. sometimes the written word is misinterpreted. I am house bound at the moment so am just clearing my hard drives of old jokes that have been emailed to me.
