The Free Spirit

Edinburgh is the most beautiful city I have set my gaze upon. “A city so beautiful it breaks the heart again and again” in Alexander McCall Smith’s words.⁣

But this post is not about that. Walking around the old quarters of the city, I just happened to click this flock of birds using my camera phone in plain old auto mode.⁣

Today, two years hence, Facebook reminded me that I was there this day. And I just noticed something new, slightly spooky yet astonishingly beautiful. (Swipe right on the image to see the zoomed in area)⁣

What did I do? Did I just capture the spirits of these birds; free spirits that wanted their own flight for a fleeting second?⁣

Or may be the phone camera just got tricked.. ⁣

Has something like this ever happened to you?
