    what attitude, fantastic!

  • This was one of those lucky shots. He came swaggering by, bold as brass, and I had just enough time to pick up the camera and snap the shutter, and then he was gone. Glad you like it.

    I love gulls. They are the birds symboliying freedom for me! I know there are gull haters, too. But they are such wonderful birds! Great shot. My sure fave.
    Also many thanks for the watch. It is my pleasure to reciprocate. Keep up the good work. Selling work here may not be as great as you hope, but RB is a wonderful community!

  • Thank you for the fave and the watch, and the kind words for my gull friend. I am having the time of my life, and if I never sell anything, why, then I never sell it; I still have the pleasure of knowing that others have enjoyed my work. And I have learned so much from the work of others. Even in the few short weeks I’ve been here, I am a much better photographer and designer. Yes, it really is a wonderful community.
