Ocean Bird by AuntDot

Abstract of rust and bubbling paint on a blue dumpster behind a store in Dunnellon, Florida. When I saw this, I thought of Marilyn Cornwell’s image “Migration” and that inspired me to call this Ocean Bird. It could be a long-winged albatross heading out from the shore for a very extended flight over the ocean.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    congratulations !! to me it looks like the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico ~~ :))

  • Thank you. I see the oil spill in so many abstract images these days! I guess it’s on the minds of many, many people. I know it is on mine and I pray every day for it to be resolved soon.
