Taken more than a year ago… Migratory seagulls can be found at the Bang Pu Seaside, about 10 km from the town of Bangkok on Sukhumvit Road. A pier stretching out over a tidal muddy beach affords a long walkway for tourists who like to enjoy a pleasant seaside atmosphere, especially at sunset. During the cool season (around November to February), visitors can view plenty of seagulls flying around the area. These particular four seem to be enjoying their time on their “stage” hopping on and off their wooden perches. Photoshop solarisation and levels adjustment were done to isolate the main four seagulls so as to enhance their visual impact.

I entered this picture (among 7 others) for the Tropical Image International Exhibition 2005, the results which would be released this coming weekend. I know for now that I have received 3 acceptances out of the 8 pictures I submitted. I wonder which were the ones the judges chose…
