I have just published a book.
A set of thirty‐three photos assembled with patience and love,
Gulls is a book which celebrates the joy of looking at seagulls.
The book has taken many months to complete (the first printing occurred a year ago) and, since I put a lot of heart into it, inevitably gives me pride and happiness. All along the past months I have had the great joy and privilege to share it with relatives; now anyone can get a copy thanks to the wonders of on‐demand printing.
Naturally enough, the contents are available are available under a Creative Commons BY‐NC‐SA license, and source files are published for everyone’s enjoyment and re‐use. In a burst of half‐amused anticipation I also wrote up answers to frequently asked questions about the book.
I complain often about how things are and how they change but expressing what I see in this way is an extraordinary privilege. Flight, or war, or both: the world is here for us to witness.
