El Arte de Provocar es una postura, una decisión. The Art of Provocation is a posture, a decision.


Este cuervo alemán, de Berlín, se vino hacia mí. No llevaba un gran objetivo, es acercamiento de verdad. No es tontería inventada, es simplemente chulería de parque urbano. Si yo le molesto, él viene y me molesta a mí, pero posiblemente con peores picos que los míos. No era un cuervo joven, sabía lo que hacía, sabía defenderse provocando. Pero yo no le hice nada que no fuera acercarme un poco para hacerle unas fotografías. Pero el cuervo se lo tomó muy en serio.

Aproveché y le disparé varias instantáneas contra el pecho y me lo llevé vivo a mi casa. Aun lo tengo y ya han pasado unos años. En un disco duro portátil lo conservo, sí. 

Él es posible que ya no vuele aunque solo han pasado 4 años de aquello y los cuervos viven una década, pero ya estaba curtido de muchos vuelos. 

Hoy me he acordado de él memorizando que iba yo en un viaje organizado de los que no te dejan tiempo ni para ver cuervos. Así que siempre tengo que ir con la cámara desenfundada, como si fuera chino. 

Ahora ya no existen los viajes organizados. O los desorganizados tampoco. Puta pandemia.

This German crow from Berlin came to me. He did not have a great camera goal, it is a real approach. It is not made up nonsense, it is simply urban park cocky. If I annoy him, he comes and annoys me, but possibly with worse spikes than mine. He was not a young raven, he knew what he was doing, he knew how to defend himself by provoking. But I didn't do anything to him other than to get a little closer to take some pictures. But the raven took it very seriously.

I took advantage of it and shot several snapshots at his chest and took him home alive. I still have it and it's been a few years. I keep it on a portable hard drive, yes.

He may no longer fly, although it has only been 4 years since that and crows live for a decade, but he was already hardened from many flights.

Today I remembered him by memorizing that I was going on an organized trip that doesn't even leave you time to see crows. So I always have to go with the camera in hand, as if I were Chinese.

Now there are no more organized trips. And the disorganized ones either. Rubbish pandemic.
