Another entry in the 5th St. Marina series… The birds were added as signs of life (flashback to workshop instructor Sanford, in Key West, declaring in her heavy Germanic accent “YOO MUST ‘AVE ZEE ZIGNS UF LIFE!!!!”). I have created a reference file of birds, mostly seagulls, comprising photos I have taken as well as general seagull images. This comes in very handy when I need to place a seagull in a shoreline scene. (There are plenty of gulls onsite, but they stay in perpetual motion.) Sanford would be proud!
