Artist's Description

Wandering around downtown Long Beach (California), I saw this sign from many years ago painted on the side of a building (viewed from a back alley). The seagull was a fortunate catch. I decided this image would look better in black and white, and then added subtle sepia toning and a bit of grain to take the photo back to the era of the sign. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 70mm [140mm in full-frame 35mm equivalent], f/5.6, 1/1250 sec., ISO 100, afternoon sun)
