CAMERA CRITTERS, SATURDAY'S CRITTERS AND BIRD D'POT

I took these photos a few weeks ago and tweaked them a little by adding the time machine feature on Paint Shop Pro.  I liked that old-world quality to them, and I always enjoy being around seagulls.

  1. They are graceful birds, though now that we have them inland all year round they no longer hold the excitement of seaside holidays and trips to the coast. Good to have a close look at them from time to time.

  7. I love gulls but being on the coast they can be tiresome at 3 Oclock in the morning sqwarking away and al you want is sleep. We often go with the grandchildren and stale bread to feed the seagulls. Thy love it and the gulls dont object to a free meal. X Don

  15. Someday I will have to learn how to copy a meme icon. The vintage photos are recent? I suspect you used photoshop. Dianne

  19. Oh, Denise, I love what you done with these. I would have liked them any way, I am sure, but just simple love the old feel of them. My favs were #2,#6, and #7 with #2 being my favorite favorite...LOL

  26. I know absolutely nothing about photography except which button to push on the camera my son gave me. Sometimes I can't even get that right. But I do love photography as well as almost all forms of art. I think these pictures are done in sepia and they are the stuff that spark my imagination.

  27. those photos remind me of an old postcard when visiting the seaside.

    Seagulls and barn owls run neck and neck as my favourites.

  31. Perfect in sepia...reminds me of an old English novel set by the sea. Jane Austen? I expect to see ladies with their bathing costumes on....

    Great flight shots -- I can never get those.
