Ecotone: Collaborations With the Anonymous

Crow Noir

Until I began to work on this photograph of train graffiti, I hadn't noticed how the shadow of a box-car lever looked like a gun. For some reason that image connected in my imagination with a black crow, and then with the concept of "noir." I also thought a glossy crow with a red berry in its beak would look especially dramatic flying past this particular box-car!
