Classy birds

Another photo to show you. I went walking in the Hammersmith area earlier in the week, beside the river, the weather being windy but otherwise perfect. Some seagulls were congregating around a man throwing bread to them and my companion said I should I attempt to photo them. So I snapped away, but I wasn't hopeful. I expected tiny smudges. However, when I got home and screened them, it turned out that some of them were decidedly okay, this being the best bit of the best one.

Had I known how well I was doing I'd have done more snaps, and maybe got something even better. The two on the lower right of things are a bit of a muddle. I have been learning Photoshop lately, and in particular have learned how to eliminate such things. But Photoshop is evil. We can now all lie with our cameras, but we shouldn't.
