From the Hip to the Crow
"The crow wished everything was black, the owl, that every thing was white."
- William Blake
This was indeed almost from the hip. I saw a crow take flight, and I whipped up the camera and took a shot. Didn't even have time to think about zooming in at all. Unsurprisingly therefore, the end result shows the crow hardly at all - but I rather like the overall look of it, with the sun flaring over the rooftop, the fire escape (I think) and the sky and clouds.
