Taking Off and Landing
Taking Off On Water
A few of a series of sketches I did from a film online of a goose taking off from water. When broken up into steps of how the goose moves it's amazing how the goose opens its wings enough to lift itself out of the water and then run across the surface of it. Yet when watching a goose take off in real life this is something incredible that goes unnoticed.
A couple of films I took of pigeons and ducks taking off and also, in the case of the Lisbon pigeons landing and washing in the fountain.
Unfortunately, birds in my park seem to have an aversion to flying, or at least they conveniently did while doing this project, so I had to settle for action in the form of walking and swimming.
