gone fishin'
my mate has just got into surfing, and wanted me to come down and get some pictures of him riding the waves. i was hoping for some more big wave type shots, but a combination of him not being as good, and the waves being really flat, meant that was impossible. in fact he found it really difficult to even catch a wave and stand on the board. i got a bit bored so looked around and saw this seagull in the corner of my eye. looking through my lens i saw that it had a fish in his mouth so i took this picture. just after clicking the shutter i turned to look at my mate who had finally stood up and caught a wave, and was just coming to a stop near the shore. he wasn't too impressed when i revealed that i'd missed that because i was taking pictures of seagulls.
