ShutterDay: The Gathering Storm

The gathering storm
This is an image I took in Reading, United Kingdom when I went for a walk one late afternoon. The sky was changing rapidly during that half hour walk and as I went along I was sure it was going to rain. I chose this of all the images I took that day because it best depicts the movement of the clouds in preparation for what actually became a thunder storm whilst still giving us a sense of calm before the storm...

I love weather and take a lot of images of the sky and weather occurrences which can be seen here in various posts on Passion in the Moments, so please do feel free to have a look around.

Flying School...A day in the life of a flock of seagulls

The following gallery is a collection of images  taken on Hayling Island, England. 
A flock of seagulls 
In this photo story, we see a flock of seagulls. as I captured this group I imagined that they were an academy flying school and that this was their final maiden voyage flight for the young cadet seagulls. (Over active imagination I know!). Therefore the group of pictures above set the scene for the Hayling Island Academy Flight School (for seagulls).
Take off!
This second group of images shows the majority of the class of 2010 taking flight as they have learnt and doing so without hesitation and to perfection.
The story takes a turn as we settle on one cadet I have named Bernie.
Bernie feather high in water yet still not budging!
Bernie is unsure about the whole flying thing, especially after so many false starts and falls. he is a keep your feet on the ground kinda guy (even if in so doing your feet get wet!). Bernie considers his options once the rest of his class had flown away and he realised quickly that it is going to have to be do or drown!

And Bernie is off!
Bernie gathers himself and every amount of courage he can summon and prepared to take flight. As Bernie ascends he finally finds his wings and has victory!!!!

The end.

Brenda Photo Challenge: Photo Essay

The mini soap opera series
I like to call this set 'The mini soap opera series', featuring my gracious models 'A & A double act'. The idea is that he is someone who lives in the same building and is trying to seduce the girl and though she flirts with him she ultimately rejects his advances. 

This photo story is symbolic of human attitudes to life in that there are those who will go out and get what they want from life understanding that this is not a dress rehearsal and we only get one shot at living. While there are others who flirt with life but never really live it and finally those who are afraid of life and therefore are bystanders thus rejecting living and making choices.
