Another bird! It’s been a while though, so it’s ok :)

This was taken out at Elwood pier in St Kilda, Melbourne. Australia. Cas and I were out here a few months back, braving the cold for some shots of the dilapidated pier and the bird life that was swarming around it.

    Great choice of colour and texture Andrew, is that part of the texture or a flock of birds in the bottom half? Whatever, it is fabulous! :))

  • Wow, I never made that connection.. it’s part of the texture, but does look like birds in the distance. Love when something can be pointed out that I never noticed or intended. Thanks so much mate!! :)
