Frozen In Motion

2010.02.23

Cropped a bit to get rid of the extra random wing.

Throwing doritos for me and creating quite a bit of motion! :)

Not in motion, but it was a good photo, I thought and went with the set. Needed some calm after all that chaos!

I had some ideas for today's theme, and as usual they didn't turn out like I wanted for whatever reason and my actual photos came unexpectedly and were better than my planned ones. When will I learn to just go with the flow and not overplan?

While I was at the park I spotted a bunch of seagulls flying around by the lake so I parked the car and hopped out. As I walked up and started shooting, a kid came over and started throwing his Doritos out on the ground near where I was to lure the birds in close for me! He kept edging closer so he could throw them right in front of me and get the birds right up close hehe. Nice kid! He ran out of chips as I ran out of space on my CF card and we parted ways for the evening. :)
I got a lot more shots that I liked than I was even hoping for, so I apologize if you guys get sick of the seagulls! I narrowed this down from about 400 shots!

Side note, I am sorely behind in catching up on all the comments and such and looking through everyone's blogs. The last few days have been so hectic (as evidenced by the fact I am posting at 12:35 am)! Thank you to all of you who have been coming back and looking! I really do appreciate all the community support!

Ole365 Nice shots. I really like #1 with it's tight crop.
Your shots illustrates motion nicely I think.

tennischick Kids have "great" ideas - this one worked even though I'm sure you had your fill of birds! They'll come out of nowhere for food. Great set - love #1!

Goldbrandi Super set.

Dad The first one is just so *stunning* to catch even the bird's "expression" - looking straight at you. And the piercing blue behind the white - makes an "ugly bird" into a piece of art. And then the *last* one - #7 - of the bird soaring low over the water - just makes my whole spirit soar with it. After the chaos of the earlier shots - to finish with serenity and beauty - just knocked my blood pressure back down and made me sigh with happiness.

MoMac Simply lovely no I and 7 are my favourites.
MoMac · 2010-02-24: 13:15
thebronzebow These are great! 1 and 7 especially! The thing about motion is it doesn't actually have to be moving. :) Well done!
