Freeloaders, Naples, Florida, 2013

The shelter at the very end of the Naples Fishing Pier offers an incongruous gathering place for both man and bird. At sunset, this shelter becomes a busy place, as fishermen fish, tourists stroll, and seagulls and terns wait patiently for handouts from both. I abstract my image, placing the sun behind the shelter’s roof, and stress the row of seven birds poised for potential free snacks. By comparing that row of small birds on the roof to the row of large human heads gathered below them, I create an incongruous juxtaposition of silhouetted shapes.
