Motion photography, taken at Rotorua lakefront for third assignment for Diploma in Digital Photography, Southern Institute of Technology.

Liked working with TV and with the camera on continuus shooting, trying to pan.

It looks like an Impressionist painting, don't you think?

This was on a windy day and the gulls loved being fed in mid air by this visitor

Flying in for the bread.

Coming in for landing

                                                                 Caught in mid flight

 Birds in motion.

                                                               At rest, motion shots over

I will be going back soon to the lakefront with my camera and tripod  I  will be asking more people from foreign lands to interact with the seagulls. It is my way of being free.

Gulls,  though over looked by many are quite beautiful creatures when you take the time to study  the texture of their feathers.  Visitors to  this country seem to appreciate them far more than New Zealanders do.
Just because something is common and always hungry, and scrappy, doesnt mean it shouldn't be appreciated.

Quotes from Jonathon Livingstone Seagull.
“How much more there is now to living! Instead of our drab slogging forth and back to the fishing boats, there’s reason to life! We can lift ourselves out of ignorance, we can find ourselves as creatures of excellence and intelligence and skill. We can be free! We can learn to fly!

““To fly as fast as thought, to anywhere that is,” he said,”you must begin by knowing that you have already arrived…”
