Jon L. Seagull

Illustrations using my photographs inspired by "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" by Richard Bach

This is a project for the Infinity group at B&H Camera store’s Event Space. The assignment was supposed to be a portrait of a character from a well-known book. I am a bird watcher so I chose a book whose main character is a bird.
Photos by Sherry Felix edited in Photoshop. Inspiration: Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach.
It was morning, and the new sun sparkled gold across the ripples of a gentle sea. (Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach)
For most gulls it was not flying that matters, but eating. For this gull, though, it was not eating that mattered, but flight. (Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach)
“Why Jon, why? Why is it so hard to be like the rest of the flock?” (Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach)
A moment later Jonathan’s body wavered in the air, shimmering, and began to go transparent. “Don’t let them spread silly rumors about me, or make me a god. O.K., Fletch? I’m a seagull. I like to fly, maybe…” (Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach)
