Apparently this was my fault. You see, I was sitting there, minding my own business waiting for my food to be ready. Meanwhile I was photographing pigeons, especially a white one which appeared to be a turtle/rock lovechild but that’s another story for another photo. Anyway… a woman came along and decided it was a good idea to set her chips down on a picnic table. I went back to my pigeons. Next thing I know there’s an almighty noise… yep, that lady left those chips and had gone back to the counter, to her friend, whatever. Meanwhile the gulls thanked her for serving such a bountiful buffet.
Apparently I could have shooed them away instead of photographing.
Hmmmm. Not many chips left in this FIRST photograph :-P Also you can only see 3 gulls here but trust me there were at least half a dozen and Brighton gulls are HUGE. Ain’t no arguin’ with them! No sirree!!
Seriously though the only fault is that of stupidity. :-D All proceeds from the sale of this photo go to the “common sense awareness” charity. Or my Amazon voucher bank. Yep, that’s more likely. :-P
Hope you enjoyed the photo as much as I enjoyed trying to work out what to say to the woman. Actually there were no words I just shook my head and blinked a gazillion times. :-P Love how it was my fault.
And no….. I did not leave my food unattended for a second once it was ready :-P
