I know one thing for sure: If you have a piece of bread in your hand and that gull sees it, things will not stay the way they are!

Beautiful sunset shot!

I think Lowell may be right Sylvia, the gull is looking at you in a 'hungry' way!! This is such a great image I love the battered old boat and the way you've cropped the shot. I hope you have a wonderful weekend with lots of blue skies.

Two great shots! I love the look on the seagull's face. :)

Thank goodness the future comes only one day at a time, otherwise I wouldn't be able to handle it. :)

Wow... The reflection of the sun on the water is... Wow ! Have a nice week-end too, my dear.

I like the subtlety of that 2nd reflection and Mr Gull is posing quite nicely for you. I hope you have a great weekend Sylvia.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Hey, you lookin' at me? Great shot of the gull.

Black Jack's Carol said...

Both shots are wonderful! Love the golden path across the water and the expression on your young seagull. (I hope, if you fed the seagull, that it wasn't bread, or if it was, then at least a nutritious multigrain one.)

Ah! A Seattle gull! Wonderful shots!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Glorious fall of light in that first photo! Stunning scene! And the gull seems a little nonplussed on that fence! Interesting perspective with the boat sailing so close by!

Pat said...

Gorgeous, spectacular sunset reflection, Sylvia! We are having temps in the 100s; it's supposed to be 107 on Sunday. We'll hunker down inside! I'm glad your temps are not too high.

Leovi said...

Yes, a nice shot, great sky and a reflection delicious. Have a lovely weekend! Greetings.

I love the gull with the houseboat in the background, and your Skywatch post below is spectacular (someone's been in the mountains)! Have a great weekend and give Sam a pat from me and Socks.

This type of gull is a big bully here.

Linda said...

What a gorgeous reflection in that first shot! And I have had a greedy gull take a french fry out of my hand when I wasn't looking!

ladyfi said...

Hope you had a wonderful birthday.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
