Put a Bird on it!

6

This may be common sense but have you done it yet? Yes, it may seem silly, but when was the last time you were up-close and personal to more than 60 birds at one time?

On my last beach trip, I stopped at the local gas station and grabbed a cheap loaf of bread. Then, I went to the beach armed with my white loaf and a handful of cameras! It’s no secret that seagulls are a very greedy feathered friend. The second I tore into one piece of bread, 10, 30, then 60 seagulls showed up! All in a fury to get some bread. I was surrounded. Seagulls are fearless when it comes to food, so beware, because they will eat right out of your hand. It makes for some fun photos! Try it next time your soaking up some rays at the beach!

So here is what you’ll need:

  • bread
  • cameras (I chose my La Sardina, Fisheye 2, and Diana Mini)

Good luck and have fun!

    My Analogue Bucket List: Faster Than a Speeding Cannonball

    The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.

    Experiencing the Rainforest Adventure Experience

    When I was a kid, one of my greatest joys was to go to the park. I especially loved playgrounds. It didn't matter how may other children there were, as long as I could have my turn to go on the slide and and sit on the swing. These days, enjoying one's childhood has become so different. Technology has stolen the interest of children in more physically demanding yet fun activities.
