This Scene Reminds Me of Alfred Hitchcock’s – The Birds

Many people have seen The Birds (1963). These birds seemed as if they could have been in that film.  My friend J was Tippi Hedren for Halloween one year at her office, a blazer torn up in spots, some other touches I can’t remember but maybe she will write and I will add them. These Turkey Buzzards and the Catbird made interesting silhouettes.  Shot with a 70-200mm lens.  Couldn’t decide if which wings made a stronger composition. Image one or two?

J sent me an email about the details of her Halloween costume at work….” My H’ween costume started out innocently enough – hair up, dark stockings, skirt, blazer.  As they day progressed a few stuffed birds started to appear on my desk.  By mid-day lots of birds and my hair got messier, a bit of blood appeared on my face and neck.  Then my blazer got ripped at the shoulder seam and bloody  bits on the blazer.  Then the dark stockings got horrible runs, and more blood and more birds and by end of day it was gruesome. ” Thanks J for the details.   6/15/11
