Not sure what this totemic assemblage signifies, but it was a worthy challenge to depict in watercolor. I had brought along a chopped down clip board along with a tripod, and realized I could C-clamp them together to make a nifty watercolor workstation.

First day on Cape Cod. This seagull came to visit - they may have been interested in my chicken salad. Nice contre jour effect against the late afternoon sun.
