Murmur, a fantastic series of photographs by Richard Barnes.

I once captured a similar flock of birds flying above a hotel near my house with my video camera. They swarmed around and formed a perfect circle, and then broke off into two separate ghost-like shapes revolving around each other. Eventually they all landed in one really small tree. It was amazing. I found that tape earlier this year, and half of what I just described had been taped over.

  • wut! this is photograps? fantastic! it looks like dirty fingerprints stuck in the sky.

    There are starlings that do that over the Albert Bridge here in Belfast, and it is one of the most aw-inspiring and unsettling sights. I wouldn’t want to be under them for all of the bird poop! Though some say a bird pooping on you is good luck.

  • this is quite possibly the most amazing thing i have seen in weeks. it’s kind of…surreal

  • I first saw this incredible bird dancing in Rome, I couldnt believe it.

  • monika

    beautiful, reminds me of (a much more intricate version of) the crows that daily fly from west to east at dusk here in vancouver. wish i could see these in real time!

  • I wish that video you described still existed in its entirety :( Anyway these are really beautiful photographs. Black and white was a good choice.

  • me too! i was devastated when it cut to something else totally unrelated haha – heartbreaking.

    yea totally agree about the b/w

  • ant

    whao! amazing photos!

  • Imagine 2 massive abandoned grain elevators in no-mans land Sask. and imagine them being occupied by thousands of sparrows! Camping between them was a phenomenal experience.

  • did you get pooped on

  • more than i would have liked to. As long as you wear a hat and don’t stare into the sky with your mouth open, you are good.

  • hahahah great advice

  • gabriela

    wow, i haven’t seen such amazing photographs since now. they are awesome, and so original.

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
