Somes Island Gull and Lighthouse

A shot from my trip to Somes/Matiu  Island last week.

At first glance nothing special until you realize that this is a fixed lens camera with a focal length of a 50mm on 35mm film. I think the focus put the gull at around 4 feet from where I was standing which is nearly as close as the Rollei will focus. The Gulls were nesting with offspring and were pretty territorial… more on that in another post…

Rolleiflex 2.8 E, Ilford FP4 125 ISO Film, CanoScan 9000F Scanner.
