The Laridae Ballet Photography Project


The Laridae Ballet, "En Croix" - Photo Credit: Lynda Ward / Visual-Stories.com

For photographers it is officially the "photography contest season" (as you can see from my previous post). So I've been entering my project "The Laridae Ballet" ---- a series of images capturing seagulls (the technical name for seagull is Laridae) --- in a few of the contests. The Laridae Ballet is a part of a larger series on which I am working that includes photographing all sorts of birds. My goal with The Laridae Ballet was to re-imagine these ordinary "scavengers of the sea" as ballet dancers. I've captured them in different "ballet positions" such as En Croix (the ballet term for "in the shape of a cross") in the photo posted here. One of the things I most like about photography is that it allows me to capture the ordinary in extraordinary ways.

Ten of my images from The Laridae Ballet series can be seen in my online portfolio: http://anenchantedforest.zenfolio.com/ballet

Peace,
Lynda
