Sam Abell Workshop - Leaving Port Clyde. ©2017 Karen Bobotas Photographer
As we were leaving Port Clyde after our day on Monhegan Island there were dozens of seagulls in front of us scattered on the road. We commented on it and had a little chuckle. In a moments time they took flight. It was a startling sight to see. Instinctually I reached for my camera set down by my feet and starting shooting. A gut reaction to what I was experiencing. Diane, the driver, slowed down so we wouldn't hit some of the gulls. We each had a different reaction to what was presented in front of us. Diane was keeping us safe - I was making a photograph. This frame reminds me that "reacting" is so important in the process of making photographs.
