The Gull – April 3, 2020 – Shahai

swoop
catching the wind
– last light

I think the  idea of a shahai or a haiga is not to describe the illustration but to communicate a feeling or sensation that the photo has “captured”. So, the gull hit my fantasy but Instead of saying:

a gull
catching the wind
– last light

I wanted to communicate the overall sensation of that moment. The swooping of the gull, being buffeted in the wind, even as I was buffeted when I took the photograph.

Now dear readers, what is your opinion about this shahai … any suggestions, any comments?  Thanks for stopping by.

Ciao,  Georgia

  1. Well, the first has such depth while the second one is like Sgt. Friday would say, “just the facts, ma’am”.

    After looking at the photo for a bit this came to me:

    the scene
    struggles valiantly
    the unseen
