Q: I've noticed that five of my uploads have " Hot" in front of the caption. Why are they caterogized that way ?

A: Do you know?

i was walking along the beach when some seagulls landed in front of me. i started to walk straight through them but stopped and thought about the colors, subject and composition. i was only seeing the blue though, it was tranquil, mesmerizing and beautiful. i had to capture it.
