Video I made of Bird on the Wire

Post by musicmania » Sun Apr 24, 2011 5:11 pm

Following a suggestion of a FB friend that I should make a video of Leonard's music using my nature photography here is a video of Bird on the Wire taken from Songs from the Road using some of the many photos I've taken of birds. Unfortunately due to Sony copywrite it can't be viewed in Germany.

Thanks again Gwen,

This such a peaceful song and watching the birds (some of which I did not recognize) makes it so much better.
You did a beautiful job. What's next? :D

Hi Gwen! Great set of bird pics, I esp. like the one of the raven looking upwards with the blue balcony in the background, and the mood of the one of the single bird in the tree silhouetted against a grainy sky. I saw all my concerts early in the Tour so am taken back to how startling it was to hear the new words in BOTW (don't cry you were always the one...oh, it was you that this longing was made for). Thanks:-)

Thanks Diane :D I'm not sure when Leonard started using these lyrics. I don't remember them in Dublin 09 but I could be wrong on that. I love the way he is always evolving his songs :D

Thank you Gwen for another beautiful collection of your photographs surrounded by the perfect song. I love the intensity and passion in his voice with this version of the song. I hope that you do not mind but I have shared to video on my facebook page for my family and friends to see and enjoy...
Very well done Gwen... thank you
