Another early bus ride into the city, another second breakfast at first light in Hart’s Bakery (context is here) – and as I lurched out of that warm, friendly and bustling establishment, the tints of sunrise were above and, looking up, I saw this.

The bird is a gull (aka seagull), and just about to leap off into the air to scavenge the city’s no doubt enticing refuse.  I have Hart’s, (s)he has Bristol.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Beautiful image. I almost feel enthusiastic for an early morning bus ride 🙂

      Well I’m used to getting up early, 6am would almost be late for me, so there’s not the toil of driving down to the Levels at such an early hour, tho I must admit to enjoying the sense of adventure at being out and about in the countryside so early. But with the bus I just bimble down to the end of the road and get transported – and of course sunrise is at its latest this time of year so that’s a big plus too. I’m losing enthusiasm for photographing the Levels, maybe I’ve “photographed myself out” down there, and the other day I ventured out to the Wilts-SGlos border, which brought quite different interests – watch this space! 🙂
