Jon L. Seagull

This is a project for the Infinity group at B&H Camera store’s Event Space. The assignment was supposed to be a portrait of a character from a well-known book. I am a bird watcher so I chose a book whose main character is a bird.

Photos by Sherry Felix edited in Photoshop. Inspiration: Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach.

For most gulls it was not flying that matters, but eating.

For this gull, though, it was not eating that mattered, but flight.

Different Perspective

I went to Central Park yesterday and took some photos in the Ramble near the feeders. It was below freezing. Even so, some birds were singing as if it was Spring. I played with the images little in Photoshop to make them into something different.

Breaking Free of Winter

The Ice is melting in New York City. It went from 30 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit in a day or so. I wore my Spring coat and took a walk on the High Line. I love the mix of nature and architecture elements of this urban garden.
