Creative Photo - The Gull of My Dreams?
I have been remiss with my Creative Photo submissions, what with snow and holidays to attend to. I am back, and this time with a warmer season view of some gulls. I think these were taken somewhere in CT, as there is actually a date code in the lower left corner with the number 86. I guess on a harbor near the Sound. There are just some gulls gathered on a dock.
The guy above the others appears in the approach pattern with his wing flaps lowered and his landing gear extended, cleared to land. The sepia view shows the avian gulls in their usual waiting for the inevitable hand out, as if they expect a fisherman to offer them anything from his bucket of chum bait.
Aha, though, in the ink drawing motif, the feathered flock appears to be posing for this portrait, and holding their pose for the artist. The change in the gull's demeanor changes to an almost winsome look. I must be gullable.
