A great gift for the nature lover

As a sister book to the popular Love is ..., Andy Royston has now published this art photography book for the nature lover, Love Gull.

Throughout the ages birds have always represented freedom. Historically man wanted to discover the secret of flight but even today, we are fascinated by the freedom that birds represent.

Every morning, artist and fine art photographer Andy Royston (otherwise known as 'himself') walks on Fort Lauderdale beach at dawn, taking his fabulous photographs. Some are available as limited edition fine art prints (personally signed) and command high prices from collectors. His book range is a way to make his images available to us all.

This book makes a great gift - please see below to see some of the images that can be found in the this lovely volume

Birds, the ocean and good luck

For Feng Shui practitioners, birds are a symbol of good luck and good fortune. Images of birds in your home can bring you luck and abundance. Experts say that if you have fifty birds - or bird images - in your home you'll have fifty times the luck and fortune!

This book is the perfect way to being that into your home or your office. I mention the office because Feng Shui tradition states that flocks of birds will protect your business and bring prosperity.

White birds are said to be significant when it comes to healing. If you have illness or injury in your home, the imagery of the seagull can help with this.

Water too is important in Feng Shui. Many Feng Shui experts recommend water fountains in the home but this isn't always convenient for everyone. Luckily, images of water have the same effect.

Jewelry for good luck

Birds are considered to be splendid good luck symbols. The appeal of the seagull is that not only do they have the rather mystical power of flight, they also live - and fly over - the ocean. This is so symbolic of freedom and the power and majesty of nature. Give this symbolism to a loved on as a thoughtful and beautiful jewelry gift.
