The ring-billed gull is the most common of gulls and not a bird I often think of photographing. Someone by the waterfront had been feeding the ducks and the gulls were flying overhead hoping to benefit too. I took some photos as they circled around. The second shot was taken at a local park. I thought the red maple leaf added a bit of interest to the scene. It seems we often overlook the ordinary when we’re taking photographs. The more I take photos the more I appreciate the importance of composing in-camera and thinking about how I’m going to edit the photo. At this rate I’ll never run out of things to take!
