Every evening, crows – many, many murders thereof – converge on Victoria Park in the heart of Charlottetown, PEI, Canada. I’ve seen them heading there, even from where I live, 25km away, but have never been in the park when they arrive. And I’ve certainly never tried to photograph them. The PEI Kelby Photo Walk was held in and around Victoria Park on October 11 this year. While other more successful photographers went off to capture the sunset or the baseball game or dusk over the city, I tried to photograph the crows. They were extremely loud, especially if you walked under the trees where they settle, but once they settled, in the gathering dusk they were nearly impossible to see.
These three are my best efforts, at low shutter speeds because of the dark. I really like the one converted to black and white and with the foliage lightened so you can actually see the crows. Other examples of Convergence for this Week’s WordPress Photo Challenge are here.
