at the boardwalk

My wife and I are back in New York to visit my mom. It is her 90-ish birthday. I am not allowed to know her actual age! Naturally we spent some time at the shore. It was a warm, breezy day. First of a few posts from my favorite place to be.

seagull or nazgul

The bird in the image above was very content to let me take my time as I snapped picture after picture. The bird seemed to enjoy being photographed as I moved in closer, or, got low to the ground, never appearing frightened or jittery. That all changed when his buddy showed up in the image below. I didn’t know seagulls could sound like Nazgul, but that’s what he sounded like. There was no way that his friend was going to ruin a future in modeling!
