I have been sorting through some family archives while at home in Aberdeen, Scotland.
Below is a clip of footage taken by my Dad (Jim Patchett, a retired BBC News Cameraman) of a flight of starlings outshining the Christmas lights on Aberdeen’s Union Street in Dec 1999.
He took the footage for an art project that my sister never got round to making at art school and I thought it would make the perfect Experimental Geography in Practice Christmas card… so Merry Christmas and enjoy!
(keep your eyes trained on the sky!)
The day after I first made this post my dad sadly passed away. For the memorial service that we held to celebrate his life on the 28th of December I set his film of the starlings to the song he requested be played at this event: “Who Knows Where the Time Goes” by Sandy Denny.
