Seagulls Silhouetted at Sunset, Sri Lanka

Art photograph of seagulls silhouetted against sunset in Sri Lanka, by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Sunset.

This sunset is in Sri Lanka. Which is a pretty useless distinction in this case, huh? Being there are no distinguishing features, I could have taken it anywhere. Unless you know those birds personally maybe.

Not my usual fare, this was a special request for a wedding invitation. It wasn’t easy to come up with something appropriate, actually—few of the things I take photos of really lend themselves to this type of thing.

The only other option was two pigeons facing each other on a wall in Istanbul. They formed a heart shape together, and looked kind of sweet and loving until I realized they were in a fighting stance.
