Hitchcock Moment

I photographed this back in early September when I was back in Dublin filming Vikings Season 3. We were filming offset days and wrapping around 9pm. Right before the sun set all these birds would take off and start murmurating. Is that even a word? I know murmuration is. It felt like a Hitchcock moment. This wasn't even a one time occurance.

Now that I'm settled back in Toronto and don't need to be jet setting around the globe, at least not for a while, I'm aiming to try some of these projects. I'll be posting the assignment name, photographer who wrote it and the page its located on, along with the images I've taken for that given project and what I've…
