  1. All great photos. I especially like the photos of the black bird for the shallow depth of field (and rain?) and the seagull for the wings. I don’t normally think of seagulls as beautiful, but this one is.


  2. I like your selective colour shot with the kites, Cee. The black and white cloudy sky just makes this shot with the contrast. And the seagull is a great shot, too. The way the individual feathers show up!


      1. Luck is often part of it, at least with moving objects (or rather, animals). And often with light, too. Being at the right place at the right time! (and having your camera ready)


  3. I love the seagull and the kites. The only thing that will be flying away today is me as I am off to Melbourne for the weekend but I have linked Naomi’s bird on a rock photo. Mine will probably feature planes 🙂
