Photographer's Note

I've taken this shot the last year, in these 1/2 october's days.
Even the last swallows are starting for the warm of Africa, this is perhaps the last good period before the first frozen days (here typically for halloween).
The swallow appear to say to me goodbye... ;-D)
Not a simple image to take with my point & shot camera: the swallows are damn quick in the movements and the poor zoom pretend to shot not too distant.
In this case perhaps 3 meters. The image is taken from my window, 35 meters high, after many attempts. My strategy was to shot manual, pre-focused to 3-5 meters and shot 'panning' the swallow when its was in the zone.

It's not technically good (above all, is too blurred) but i find it cute and well describing an event well knowed in these days.
Hope you like it!
