Seagull romance, does it exist? Gulliver the gull is so handsome posing on the piling. He spies Gullveig, gets her attention, and then chats her up with a few caws. Gullveig is not so gullible, though. She plays coy to his advances. Gulliver persists. Eventually, Gullveig struts her tail feathers, showing Gulliver that she is open to his affections. Gulliver moves in and convinces Gullveig to fly off with him for some gull-avanting around Corpus Christi Bay.
This series was photographed along the promenade area of the downtown seawall in Corpus Christi, Texas. It was a bright overcast day, providing perfect “open shade” lighting for photographs. The artist used a Nikon D300 to capture these images, with processing done in Adobe Lightroom.
