Walking along the same promenade where I took the previous couple of pictures, I passed some beach huts.  Strung between the apex of two was this length of bunting, something attracted my attention to it, perhaps it was the colour.


The Chicken and The Gull


I saw the potential for this shot from some distance, so eased myself closer and closer – to an increasingly frantic alarm call from the gull (the cockerel was pretty quiet).  I expected the gull to take flight just as I got into the right position, like these things do, but I was lucky and I managed to get a couple of shots.  Unfortunately, I had to drop a down a fair bit from my original position to get the juxtaposition just right – it would have been nice to get a few feet higher to get more of the gull – instead of it being hidden by the chimney pot.


No Exit

There I was, filling some time during the lunch break at a ‘Day School’, wandering the back streets, as you do, looking for interesting interplay between shadows and walls/objects,  when the shadows on the wall attracted my attention.  It was a couple of moments before I realised exactly what I was looking at.

I sure hope the door was a fire exit, though, as it’s an outward opening door, I suspect it was.  What I really liked was the provision of the shovel for any would-be rescuers to clear the way!
