Janice, I'm not a photographer, I just wanted to say nice shots!
I'm not real close to the shore, in South Jersey. I get there enough,
but my pic qualities are only so-so compared to many here. I take them
mostly as a visitor/tourist, a whole 50 minutes or so away. I mostly take
them for painting reference. I have found seagulls make a good subject.
Now we even get them coming inland looking for food.
