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.
Why Jon, why? Why is it so hard to be like the rest of the flock?

A moment later Jonathan’s body wavered in the air, shimmering, and began to go transparent.

    I couldn’t the moving images, my machine probably
    the stills were beautiful
    the story line was a bit to human for me, especially the comments to Fletch
    they didn’t flow like the images
    interesting direction, though

      This is a famous book I chose to illustrate for that project. The quotes are ones I chose to use from the book. Each image illustrates each quote. Perhaps it only makes sense if you know the book Johnathan Livingston Seagull.
