Feb Club Winning Picture Senior

“Come fly with me” by Dee Bennion from Durban Camera Club

This image came about with a combination of photos … I work for a vet that rehabs wild animals, and had the 2 pelicans at my house.

The male which I placed in the aircraft in photoshop, I have had for about 4 years – due to him having a badly broken wing, the other placed on the wing is a baby.

The biplane was on a visit from overseas – the owner was doing a trip right across Africa to commemorate a previous historic flight, and due to having been a pilot myself, I had the great pleasure and honor of meeting the owner and pilot when she landed in Durban.

The bloke in the aircraft was taken when a team of French high wire acrobats came to Durban and performed an act one evening above Durban in the vicinity of city hall.
