|Just being silly -- but someone else asked, as well, so posting it here.
Question about my neighborhood image:
"Wow Wendy how did you get those birds to perform for you, what a find, and where is this?"
This is about an hour away from my house, in Virginia Beach. That's the city in which I work.
I went down to the ocean front because there was a tropical storm due the next day, so I was curious what the waves were like.
The waves weren't all that interesting, but when I turned around to leave, I noticed a family feeding the seagulls from a hotel balconey.
All the time I was thinking that the challenge was "My Neighborhood", but then I realized it was "the" neighborhood. I was excited to be able to use the shot. It's so typical of Virginia Beach. The whole boardwalk is just hotel after hotel.
I thought it was so awesome. I don't think the photo turned out nearly as well as reality. The gulls ended up blending in more than I thought they would. This is one of the times that I think video would have said it better than still. But I'm really glad people liked it. :)
