#500. Galveston Glider

Taken at Stewart Beach on Galveston Island today. It was a beautiful day today so I decided to make a run down to Galveston to try and make a few images. This was my favorite out of the dozen or so I took of this gentleman and his flying machine.

Title: "Galveston Glider"

Nice coposition. To me including so much negative space adds a sense of how the experience would feel. Looks like a good candidate for "Less is More" in April!

That looks like something out of Willy Wonka or one of those shows! Could that be Spiderman??? The seagull is trying to figure out what type of bird that is. I have never seen one of those in Galveston --- it is self propelled, right? I mean, not attached to a boat? Very interesting! What does the #500 have to do with the glider?

Thanks Larry and Cindi!

Larry - I'm apparently thinking along the same lines for "Less is More" as you are!

Cindi - Yes, it's self-propelled. Basically the operator sits on a chair that has a motor and propeller attached to it. #500 is a reference to this being my 500th post. I'm going to start numbering them like Brian Basinelli and others do so that I can refer to previous posts by number rather than by date.
