|Black-Backed Gulls and seaweed on the beach at Montano de Oro State Park, California|
I was able to incorporate wild fauna and flora from my trip to California after all. These gulls are apparently the largest along the Pacific coast of California. Aggressive scavenging carnivores, their presence while my husband and I picnicked on the beach was awe-inspiring & scary. They kept circling us closer and closer. I expected them to swoop in and snatch my sandwich at any moment. This composition was invented from photos I snapped that day & memory.
Tomorrow, I'll package Masha's book to send to Katie. I so enjoyed the challenge of your theme, Masha. It prompted me to create an image via a different process, outside my usual. (I rarely work from photos!) And I am, for the most part, pleased with my result. I hope you like it, ladies!
