The photograph shot in England, Picnic with Birds, 2001 by Leonard Freed is a 5" x 7" gelatin silver photograph, stamped “vintage” by the Freed estate on verso (back of photo) and signed verso by the photographer. Provenance: Freed archive.

What catches the viewer’s eye is the seagulls in flight. The dynamic tension of birds’ wings with two people about to, perhaps, have lunch while enjoying a vacation spot view draws us in.
