The recent release of ‘Hitchcock’ the movie showcases the genius of the man who created world-class suspense films from his ‘Alfred Hitchcock Presents’ series on TV introduced by that fantastic piece of music – ‘Funeral March of a Marionette’ by Charles Gounod.

Similarly seagulls feature in most beach and bay areas around the world. Here’s a 3-D depiction of a bird captured through a street-art projection.
