drawing challenge 170: move

"As the crow flies": 
 In a straight line distance between two locations,  as 
 opposed to the the road distance or over land distance. 

"Move" is this week's theme for the drawing challenge.
Above images of a flying bird from Eadweard Muybridge,
an English photographer important for his pioneering work
in photographic studies of motion.

To see more "moves", please visit the site of Katrin,
who's the host this week.

any muybridge will always move me so...
so fantastic that people were obsessed by movement and have delivered us so much to ponder upon. n♥

I'm a big fan of Muybridge, and had never seen these bird studies before, so thanks for sharing them. i also like your piece at the top!

wonderful take on our theme
i love seeing all the movements of the crow in flight

for some reason i thought this weeks theme was color... even though i had written down 'move' ;-)

good week to you~

I could spend all day looking at these images, Eric, but instead I'll head outside to watch the birds fly above.
Hope you have a fabulous week.

Maybe the swing of a wing is the best move ever. Thank you for this.

Oh that's fantastic! I've wanted to make something for a very long time now. That round mirror thing where you spin it and images reflect. What's that thing, I'll look it up. PHENAKISTOSCOPE! That's such a weird name I keep forgetting it. Anyway, one of these days I'm going to make one and then borrow these photos and make the bird fly. :D X

These images of birds are amazing. It seems that I have been watching birds for weeks since they have nested in the trees behind my garden and under my fascia board. Your painting is the perfect blue sky.😊

I admire the crows in flight. Fantastic! You have a lovely blog. Lots of interesting information about art here. I like the scratched and cracked effect in some of the collages. It adds an interesting dimension to the overall collage.
I will be returning to view more posts.
