Seagull Wisdom

The wisdom of Jonathan Livingston Seagull

Ever since reading the book, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, and seeing the movie of the same name, I’ve loved the quote layered over this photo!  Written by Richard Bach, it seems to be a universal theme for all of us at numerous times throughout our lives.  The photo was taken on the west coast of Florida at sunset and certainly has impact.

I watched the movie again recently and it was not as good as remembered, however the soundtrack is outstanding.  It was written and performed by Neil Diamond and has a classical and very spiritual sound to it.  If you can find it, give it a listen and if you’ve never read the book, give that a try too!

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
