Sparrows

Kind of rough, and heavily compressed, but appropriate for its subjects I think, with all of their frenetic energy.

When I was initially creating this blog, a quote by Werner Herzog, in the narration of “Grizzly Man,” stuck in my head. He talks briefly, over one of the scenes with the fox cubs, about how some moments in the guy’s video footage have a rare beauty that could never be captured by a conventional film crew, no matter how much money they had.

And that’s part of the point of this site, for me. It’s not a question of talent or skill so much as just having a very small camera with me all the time, and trying to keep my eyes open, so I don’t miss little scenes like this, discovered in a vacant lot in Minneapolis, on New Year’s Day of 2007.
