Seagull Boredom

I snuck up on this seagull or so I thought. As soon as I framed the scene, I was gifted with this yawn.

I opted to not erase the background bird as if you are viewing this on a BIG screen, it kind of looks like the gull is about to catch a mosquito.

More Reflection Symmetry

I had a wee struggle to crop this photograph to maintain the intended purpose and honestly, if I stare long enough, I find myself needing to cock my head. 😀

Not so symmetrical reflections

Reflection Symmetry

There is something about symmetry that tickles the brain, literally.

“I would claim that symmetry represents order, and we crave order in this strange universe we find ourselves in,” writes physicist Alan Lightman in “The Accidental Universe: The World You Thought You Knew.” “The search for symmetry, and the emotional pleasure we derive when we find it, must help us make sense of the world around us, just as we find satisfaction in the repetition of the seasons and the reliability of friendships. Symmetry is also economy. Symmetry is simplicity. Symmetry is elegance.”

Do You See It?

I turned around just to visit the reversing falls of Hancock, ME. After standing there a bit, I asked the gentleman over on the next rock if he was seeing it.

Turns out, the phenomenom is best viewed 2 hours before or after low tide. I made a note to download a tides application for my iPhone. 😀

Pollination Magic

I’ve said it before and will most likely do so again, but the Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS lens hits such a sweet spot when it comes to photographing the macro world.

The fact it is also a stellar portrait lens is icing on the carrot cake.
