One thing I'm always on the lookout for is the inspiring sort of picture - something that knocks me back on my heels a bit, something that makes me say "damn, that's a hell of a picture." The big problem here is getting the camera's eye to see things the same way. Every once in a while, though, I come across something that works.
All told, I took twenty-three pictures of this gull - I think it's a gull, but I'm no ornithologist - perched on this girder along the pier in New Westminster, right next to where they're building Westminster Pier Park. That's the Alex Fraser Bridge off in the distance. This one is my favorite of all of them. It just has that sort of look; at least, I think it does.
