Bird flying by

A gull flies off after an inconsiderate photographer runs after it to shoot it. Beats having the kids do the running eh? They might fall!

This was taken in San Francisco, and that’s The Golden Gate Bridge in the background. I went through my shots from my August trip a few days ago and selected around one hundred images for processing. I’ll mix in a few shots over the next few week’s posts. There’s everything from bridges, street people and furniture, Memphis Minis and Alcatraz so plenty for all tastes.

Note to self – when traveling to a new timezone, change the time on your camera!

    Great catch!! So this shot was made “on the fly?” I’ll look forward to seeing more images from your trip.

    Not bad. Not bad at all… Can’t identify the bugger though. What colour were it’s feet?

    I think the lines work well – I wouldn’t worry about it at all.

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    Matt – feet were a dull red colour. Does that help?

    hello xeer,
    I like your photo!
    I am the Admin for a group called Birds in the Sky which consider photos of flying birds minding more the esthetic value of the image than the excitement of birds watching.
    It would be great if you join and had the time to add this picture to our group:
    thank you
