Urban Wild Life

Newer Older

Even in the middle of the city nature follows its rhythm, with it's life and death game... This seagull just chased the poor pigeon and was trying to take it to a more quiet place. People and cars were passing around him with mutual indifference.

Girona is a city placed at some 50 Km from the coast, but it has a big seagulls colony due to the many rivers that cross the city. In fact, seagulls are cosidered a plague causing many problems (noise, dirt...), and the government of the city makes regular population control on them, puncturing the eggs on their nests.

    How do you do it? EVERY shot has the magic pixie dust that makes it special... the onlookers, the loaded beak...

    There's a quiet indifference in the eyes of the gull. Survival of the fittest at its worst. Amazing shot however.
