I agonized for hours trying to decide which image post here. Something similar to Dave? Something more in my style? Green beans? Kids playing around?
I initially prepared an image from the following series.
I settled for a bird. Yes, a simple Seagull. When you read how it was shot, you'll see why I picked it.
If it was to have a title, it would be: Luck favors those that are prepared.
He looked like the kind of bird that wanted to fly low -- really low. As he approached, I just raised my camera from my hip, aimed in the general direction of Jonathan and fired. I guess I was lucky. Or like I want to think, I was ready.
Shot at 45mm equivalent, you can tell that he was very, very close.
