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.

this is beautiful! usually birds are hard to capture
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. 🙂
This is beautiful. I love the different colours reflected in the sea.
Thank you! It was quite an atmospheric day and the water really caught the reflections. Right place, right time I guess. 😉
