Photographer David Ingraham says he's always on the lookout for poetic use of light and shadows. So when he saw how these "shadows were nicely separated, almost in a choreographed sense," he couldn't resist snapping a half-dozen photos.
As for the added bonus of capturing a couple of birds mid-flight? Ingraham reveals, "Seagulls at Venice Beach are so ubiquitous that it's almost a challenge not to get one in your shot! Nevertheless, I think they help complete the composition here."
The image was taken with Ingraham's iPhone 4S.
