I’ve been carrying the RX1 around with me everywhere; it’s such a delightful camera to put in my pocket, and I’m always looking for an excuse to shoot with it. Tonight, around twilight, Liz and I were waiting in line for one of the many Portland International Film Festival movies we’ll be seeing over the next few weeks. While we were there, a murder1 of crows numbering in the hundreds swooped and cried around downtown. I loved the juxtaposition of the crows flying with the piano-style look of the museum’s building, and the light was just magnificent: moody, blue and mottled.

And the movie? Ginger and Rosa, from Great Britain. Good. Not great, but it was better than most, and Elle Fanning was very good.2 We’ve got two weeks to go — I’ll keep bringing my camera, just in case.

  1. Yes, that’s what they’re called. Poetic, I think.
  2. Our favorite so far has been A Simple Life, a profoundly beautiful and touching film from China. Well worth watching, if you can find it. There was a write-up of it worth reading in The New York Times last year.
