How is that for a title of a post that is really just a bunch of pictures of birds I took in Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco while I waited for my wife, daughter and her boyfriend to finish up doing some touristy thing? I had the zoom lens on, and it started off with me just seeing if I could get any of the seagulls in focus while they were flying over my head.
“I’m the king of the pigeons!”
“I’m the king of the world!”
“Really? Because we have a submarine!”
There is a little trick to getting good shots of birds in the air. Take really big digital images, and then crop them down in Photoshop or some other photo editing software, centering on the bird. It makes you look like you know what you are doing.
See what I mean?
Getting shots of birds in the water is a lot easier.
And that was like shooting fish in a barrel.
A lot of people say that seagulls are just rats with wings, but I find them rather interesting, and there are a lot of different kinds of gulls.
“Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine!”
See, now that is a cute little gull.
The feathers are beautiful, and she had very sweet eyes.
