Birds Above Industry

I watched a flock of pigeons drift about in the evening sky for over ten minutes. They didn’t land in all that time. They rose and fell, clustered together and fell apart, circled and circled and finally, eventually landed on the roof of the buildings they were roosting on for the night. Those buildings provided a stark contrast to the soft skies and delicate silhouette of birds – they were flying above the steel, glass and concrete buildings of Rolls Royce headquarters in Derby, UK. I deliberately cut out the buildings.

It was a bit of a meditative experience, just watching their motion as a group, coming together and drifting apart, over and over. The image taken is a little meditative for me too – all greys and blues, with a drift of birds floating across the sky in the lower half of the image, while heavy clouds loom above them. I quite like it.
