Pricey piece of real estate.....!


Walking along the boardwalk in between downpours at Hilary's Marina yesterday afternoon trying out Aimee's new 45mm F1.8 Prime lens ..mainly used for portraits, perfectly clear subject with softly blurred background. I like it a lot, might have to take it into the city with me tomorrow and actually try it out on, wait for it..real people :) it can be my challenge for the day! Meanwhile Mr & Mrs J Seagull were setting up the beginnings of home on a boat that was worth somewhere in the 'more than a house' value range, let's hope the weather puts the owners off sailing until junior is off their, em.. wings! TGIF absolutely this week, take care.....

  4. Judging by the state of the blue cover, it looks like they've been eating well. Maybe that lens is a bit too good :)

  9. You tell a wonderful tale, Grace. I am guessing Mr & Mrs Seagull will be moving soon :). Good luck with that lens. You'll have fun with it for sure!

  13. I am afraid that their "layette" is making a mess of the boat. Looks like a good place to set up housekeeping to me.

  17. A couple of boat squatters - not a bad idea!

  18. Sailing is definitely a rich man's sport. Cost of boat, slip fees, maintenance of said boat...It's better to have a friend who owns one.

  20. Wow, beautiful job on this photo. That is the exact lens that is my next purchase. I can't wait to try it out.

  21. That is a nice lens. I've got a Nikkor 50mm, f/1.8, which I like very much. Gulls have more gall than Napoleon. They should carry their own pooper-scoopers!

  22. These are some beautiful seagulls!
