Seagulls by the Lake

Belmont Seagulls

I wish I could fly
Like a bird over water
And leave life behind

This was taken in Belmont the other week, at the same time as the other two photos I posted a little while ago. The seagulls are always very friendly there and make for some good subjects.

I was mostly just experimenting and was not looking for anything particularly exciting. I wanted to see if I could create a look close to some of the film cameras I loved when I was first learning photography and I like how it came out.

    1. Thank you! They can be tricky, luckily they were reasonably sedate when I took this and I was able to get quite close. About a minute later one of them went for me though so maybe I got a bit too close. 🙂
