Charlie's Feet


You may well ask the reason for a photograph of a seagull's rear end.

The best I can do is tell you that I was waiting for FNAC, a shop in the Metropole Centre to open - so I wandered down to the area below the Casino and, having nothing better to do, stood there snapping the gulls. This one's feet reminded me of Charlie Chaplin...and he always made me laugh - or cry.

I've never seen a photo of a seagull cropped that way and frankly it WORKS! What a great composition!

Love it!

Strangely enough, I have a Monaco seagull on my blog today too. Only mine's on my header, rather than an actual post.

Yes, I agree with Nathalie - it works. Same gull as the full image, but a much 'better' photo.

Surely the feet of CC were more splayd (however that is spelt!). What I like are the knobbley knees ...

Oh yes, I think this shows where the expression "bird legs" comes from... Totally cute, and a great shot. Love that we both posted gulls!

Bises,
