And I Ran. by bobfoto

And I Ran.

"I ran for night and day.
I just Ran.
Couldn't get away."

Seagulls would only run for a chip.
you mean a flock of seagulls would only run for a chip right ??

this is totally gorgeous :) very nice detail ;-)
November 16th, 2011  
That's really beautiful! How did you get so close?
November 16th, 2011  
I like the white on white.
November 16th, 2011  
I've been chased by a seagull. Fact.
November 16th, 2011  
Gorgeous bird!
November 16th, 2011  
I have a friend who says he would like tocome backas a seagull so he could eat hot chips all day. Great shot, love the whites
November 16th, 2011  
@5unflow3r - chips.

@taidster - I did, but I thought I'd leave a little for "dear viewer".

@buggirl - over exposed to buggery!

@houdiniem - I'll see your Seagull and raise you a Pelican!

@luxvivens - they are despite their reputation!
November 16th, 2011  
@bluebell - that sounds like a good grounding for reincarnation!
November 16th, 2011  
Totally overexposed shot. Works like buggery...Fave
November 16th, 2011  
@swilde - Cheers Sue!
November 16th, 2011  
The eye looks so great. And this whiteness. :) Nice.
November 16th, 2011  
@lasminja - Thank you Lasminja :)
November 16th, 2011  
great close-up ~ used to love that song, back in the day!
November 16th, 2011  
amazing! how did you get that close or did you use a telephoto?
November 16th, 2011  
@littlec - telephoto at 263mm so a backed-off 300mm. But this bird was close.
November 16th, 2011  
@trude - It was such a cool song with cool hair-dos!
November 16th, 2011  
Ian
great capture and processing, love it!!
November 16th, 2011  
I love chips--potato and poker! I must have been a seagull in a past life or a member of an 80's band with crazy hair! The details are beautiful and the eye is captivating! :-)
November 16th, 2011  
@bobfoto Duh right. I even read your blurb. LOL :-)
November 16th, 2011  
@hanky - Cheers Ian!

@lorihiro - *JD crosses fingers and wishes... 80's rockstar 80's rockstar 80's rockstar, with big hair*

@5unflow3r - my right toe got smashed recently so is not cloven at the moment. Might have to change me blurb ;)
November 16th, 2011  
very nice seagull, but now I will start my day with Flock of Seagulls in my head. I just keep wanting to see
him with 80's New Wave hair
November 16th, 2011  
wow... this is fantastic... love the white tones with the darkness of the eye and beat.
November 16th, 2011  
fav by the way.
November 16th, 2011  
oh yeah, been chased by a few. awesome shot.
November 16th, 2011  
@brumbe - that was the plan... hope you enjoy your day!

@carrapeta00 - Thank you Lara, thanks for the fave :)
November 16th, 2011  
Well they are a bit stinky, and they are also mean. But they are beautiful!
November 16th, 2011  
@luxvivens - I've never sniffed a seagull
November 16th, 2011  
@catsmeowb - do they really chase people? I wasn't sure about @houdiniem and her tales of flight and fantasy!
November 16th, 2011  
@bobfoto Yes they chase people! And they steal things from your beach blanket. I find it all very amusing though....until thy steal my sandwich.
November 16th, 2011  
That eye looks evil - I'd start running, too. Marvellous close-up!
November 16th, 2011  
For me they are a symbol of freedom - soaring above the roaring waves, salty fresh air rushing over their feathers and eating exactly what they like, cholesterol and all, finger-lickin' good chips! Fab portrait!
November 16th, 2011  
@bobfoto oi!! i was 9 years old and chased across the school playground :(
November 16th, 2011  
Beautiful shot
November 16th, 2011  
Wonderful detail and close up.
November 16th, 2011  
I will see both of your @houdiniem bird chases, and raise you getting beaked in the leg by a swan. This is a pretty awesome shot too.
November 16th, 2011  
Wow! This is gorgeous!!! Beautifully captured, Jason!
November 16th, 2011  
That is a beautiful bird even if he is just a seagull!
November 16th, 2011  
Oooh I love this!!! Great job!
November 16th, 2011  
The funny thing is, I was just listening to that song.. Nicely done!
November 16th, 2011  
Interesting shot :-)
November 16th, 2011  
Love the processing, fabulous capture and oh that beedy eye, I feel my chips are at risk even from the computer screen!
November 16th, 2011  
Beautiful capture.
November 16th, 2011  
A seagull shot worth staring at ! Wow !
November 16th, 2011  
@5unflow3r @houdiniem - hee hee hee. If you ladies ever decide to visit Australia, I will take you to a place where the Emus steal your lunch. Now I'm nearly a grown-up yet they scare the shit out of anyone!
November 16th, 2011  
@jannaellen - Evil Eye? Stink Eye perhaps?

@thebluegnu - I've never read about Seagulls in such light!

@lmasinton @maggie2 - thank you ladies :)
November 16th, 2011  
@pwallis - The stakes are now up to Emu attacks. I'll leave my encounter with a Male Cassowary and his chicks to the next round ;)

@cjwhite @buttercup @sbb1980 - Thanks ladies :)

@uller - No Way! That is so cool!

@imprezoid - Cheers Steven!

@judithdeacon - heh heh heh...

@sharingmylife - thank you Savannah. :)

@glyn - I tried a staring competition but he just flew away!
November 16th, 2011  
@bobfoto Already afraid of Emus...they had one at a local farm and he was behind a fence, still very feisty, and we were told to watch out for our eyes. Is that true? So they try to take your eyes?
November 16th, 2011  
@pwallis yikes!!! that even beats a pigeon hitting me on the head!
November 16th, 2011  
@5unflow3r - my experience tells me that your eyes are safe as long as you are carrying a sandwich. Emus love sangers. Now if you had an Eyeball Sandwich, well now, that would be asking for trouble...

A Pelican once tried to eat a Pastie out of my friend's mouth. The bird caught my friend by the nose instead.

@houdiniem - A Brush Turkey landed on my head only two weeks ago, while I was riding my bicycle along the river.
November 16th, 2011  
Beautiful capture!
November 16th, 2011  
@meadow - thanks Cheryllee :)
November 16th, 2011  
Stunning shot!
November 16th, 2011  
Fav. Stunning shot!
November 17th, 2011  
Bad birds especially the big ones my shot today was a herring gull much prettier and sweeter!
November 17th, 2011  
great shot!
November 17th, 2011  
Wow! Great portrait, and overexposure is really good here!
November 17th, 2011  
I really like your exposure on this one. Very cool shot.
November 17th, 2011  
@mejbronant @moirab @moirab - Mair Moira and Mike, I thank you!

@aj1268 @webfoot - Paula and Paul, thanks!
November 17th, 2011  
Amazing shot.
November 17th, 2011  
Actually Jason I really love what you've done with this, the white background really works a treat, wonderful editing. fave
November 17th, 2011  
@sangwann - Cheers Dione! Thanks!

@veekay - It was really late in the evening and o'ercast, so yeah, the over exposure helped wash it all out!
November 17th, 2011  
This is a stunning photo!
November 17th, 2011  
@semoor - Thank you Semoor, thanks!
November 17th, 2011  
Amazing close up.. white on white.. beautiful
November 17th, 2011  
@michelleyoung - I'm digging the white at the mo'... maybe I'm stepping away from the darkside?
November 18th, 2011  
Depending on the angle of my screen the background goes from white to blue. I totally dig the white. I'm avoiding the word awesome due to "someone" overusing it. I won't mention names :-p
So instead I just might use spectacular. Yes, this is spectacular.
November 18th, 2011  
@amz87 - I know what you mean with that screen colour change thingo.... have no idea who uses "awesome" too much though....
November 18th, 2011  
Nice high-key work! I can never get these looking decent - you have here for sure :)
November 18th, 2011  
@roobubba - he was a patient bird indeed.
November 18th, 2011  
great shot!!
November 18th, 2011  
@valephotos - thank you Valentina, thanks :)
November 18th, 2011  
@bobfoto White on white is always cool.. well until you get bored of it and then go back to black lol
November 18th, 2011  
@michelleyoung - the darkness is never too far away.
November 18th, 2011  
@bobfoto Oh that was a different conversation with a different person lol. Let's just say there's been a big inbox conversation about said person on fb.
November 19th, 2011  
@amz87 - *wink*
November 19th, 2011  
@bobfoto We on the same page now? hehe
November 19th, 2011  
@amz87 - same psalm.
November 19th, 2011  
oh wow!! just love it!
November 24th, 2011  
@kammy - coolio! Gotta have at least one seagull in the 365!
November 25th, 2011  
Farking masterpiece! Total fave!!
December 25th, 2011  
@tabbycat - Cairns' esplanade I think.... enticed with a chip I never had.
December 25th, 2011  
Ah now look at that - great minds, eh?
Mine wasn't after chips. It was on a small peninsula in a nature reserve and was guarding it's nest so kept it's beady eye on me. At least I didn't get divebombed and pecked on the head like last time. Nice one, Mr Daniels.
January 13th, 2012  
@deens - Oh dear, no good to be attacked by this birds. :(
