A classic English sea side scene. I was being dive-bombed by seagull's after my chips so I had to make a run for it- threw my chips into the air, fired a shot off as i ran from the battle ground and took cover.

    That's great; it looks more like a painting than a photo. Nice orange feet.

    a couple of weeks ago, i bought a cheap loaf of bread from a gas station & headed to the bead. they are RUTHLESS! i had my camera & my foot in the air so they wouldn't attack! got a couple cool shots out of it, but one of them hit me right in the shoulder!
