This California Gull (Larus californicus) is taking off from the water. He is not actually made of light, taking off from light and shadow bokeh, but if you want to think that I won’t complain!
Malcolm found this wonderful post about Bokeh! Pronunciation, Meaning and Practical Use from the excellent photographer Martin Bailey. It made us both laugh out loud, and it’s very much worth listening to. Not least that it might help everyone understand and pronounce bokeh better! (Do try and avoid calling people asshole, which, it seems, is what I’ve been doing!)
Speaking of which, I loves me some bokeh!
