I'm not sure which initiated my thoughts, the visual sighting or the photo taking, but the sight of the three crows on the branch immediately radiated the image to my brain and out came the litany in my head; "three crows a letter".
Marshall McLuhan had coined his famous phrase, "the medium is the message" in the 1960's. McLuhan placed his emphasis on the study of media, or the way a message was relayed, as being that of most importance for he felt that the media would have the greatest impact on society.
Did you notice the broken telegraph wires in the photo? That medium is now obsolete, as perhaps is also my childhood belief of the letter receiving, fortune telling, properties of crows.
