Art: Great Blue Heron by Artist Christopher Boswell

Is he laughing at me?

This Great Blue Heron was just lounging under a house on Lake Union when I bumped into him. We spent the whole morning together and I was able to capture him feeding on four different fish. !

When I go out to photograph I don't choose my subjects, they pick me. It is my job to document what presents itself to me. This bird showed up while I was attempting to do some nautical work in an Urban Setting.

Generally, I choose an area to cover when I shoot, trying to be prepared for what animals I know are likely to be encountered. In this case that meant boats and stuff like that, but surprise!

Then the breathing and the seeing begins. Seeing a good image takes practice and awareness. The open mind gets you started and then the subject takes you to another place, the Art has a mind of it's own and wisks you away.

This image was chosen for this show because it represents the ultimate in wild birds.

Made on film with a 35mm Minolta Camera and an 800mm lens.

Thank you for providing the eyes to view this piece!

Enjoy! Christopher Boswell Art
