Seagulls playing in the wind

  1. Love the descriptive poetry. Beautiful words to accompany this photo.

  2. The structure is another one of man’s architectural Frankensteins to contaminate the environment.Beautiful words aside a monster. Comment reflects my bitterness oil spills Louisiana and the 400 sea drilling derricks in that part of the gulf. Of course this is not an oil derrick but represents the idea. That is why I can find no beauty or poetry in the picture.

    • This is actually a pier for sailboats, nothing to do with oil or factories. The monster is behind it, and we call it Mordor or Springfield.
      I’m sorry about the oil spills; we keep complaining about the factories, but where money is concerned no one listens to the people. I promise to teach my students to love and respect nature.

  3. I like the pairing of words with the sunset. What is that thing anyway?

    • I’m questioning the quality of my shot now, since I’ve photographed this pier a hundred times and no one asked what it was before. Maybe the shot is too dark? It’s actually a pier for sailboats to go in and out of the water.
      Glad you like the combination of words and poetry :).

      • Haha, it’s not your fault. It’s just that I guess I’m not that familiar with boat things and I was more curious about the crane thing.

  4. nice poetry.. love the line ‘struggling so hard for a handful of dreams’.. great photo too.. love the sky especially

  5. It’s good to see manmade items competing with nature, not a hope of winning with THAT sunset but still an interesting silhouette!…….. thank you for sharing your view of a fiery sky!…:)

    • If if wasn’t for the factories behind it, this would probably be one of my favorite spots in the world. Lovely sunsets and some beautiful silhouettes to go with them. I’m glad you enjoyed the photo!
      Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Lovely picture, and I love the poem too. I agree with Dhaami, ‘struggling so hard for a handful of dreams’ is my favourite part. You’ve definitely got a talent with the words!

    • Thanks, Kieran! Like I said, it’s my favorite line, too. It summarizes my life at present, and reminds me why I’m doing what I’m doing.
      I’m glad I’m enjoying being around words again, since creating is one of the most amazing feelings in the world :).

  7. Love the silhouette… Really adds something extra special to the shot..

  8. Wonderful. You put together words and images so well. 🙂

  9. Sigh. This poem makes me want to float in the middle of the ocean. Blame the accompanying photo, too.

    • I’m wishing for places I can’t be, too. The beauty of poetry and photography is that, at least, I can close my eyes and imagine I’m there. Glad this post did that for you!
