Black and White Flamingo

Flamingo

A  black and white flamingo, taken at the Birdland park in Boulton-on-the-water, Cotswolds, UK.

Removing the pink colour and darkening the background enhanced the shapes of bird’s neck, wings and body. I also added some extra noise for a vintage look.

 

Colourful Houses in Cape Town

A row of colourful houses in Cape Town, in the Bo-Kaap, the Malay quarter.

It took me a few visits at different times of the day to find the right light and shadows. this was taken around midday, with the minimal shadows and bright light falling overhead and bouncing off the walls on the other side of the street, like a reflector.

The bright colours and the compressed perspective of a long focal range give the view an abstract look. Almost like Lego bricks.

Seagull stealing my breakfast

I caught this seagull stealing my breakfast one morning in Capri, Italy.

The table was nicely set for a breakfast on our room balcony and this seagull just could not help himself. In fact, it did help himself to my muffin!

Maybe it was trying to have it with some jam too.
