Looks like the birds are having more success than the fishrman - he looks like he has been up all night and is disappointed.

Dang, I wish the guy with the fishing pole was out of the picture. I really like the old guy feeding the birds but the fishing pole is distracting to me - like a dagger being pushed into his underarm. Great tones, again, for such a sunny day.

Wow.. love this shot.. 2 birds with one stone.. that's great the image of the fisherman and the bird feeding guy in the background.. Always a joy to take a peek at your blog! Talk soon!

Classic beach scene. I can't believe that man is feeding seagulls... blah. Those birds are so pesky, here in Michigan they'll practically steal the food right off your plate.

Wow. I really like this one. The guy in the background cracks me up. Is he waiting to get pooped on? LOL

This is a great scene! It's a nice departure from your usual architecture shots. (Not that I don't like those, it's just nice to mix it up every now and then!)

I agree with Ian. It looks like the fisherman has had some bad luck and is disappointed.

I see people feeding birds at our beach, and I could never understand why they throw the food straight up. I think that runs a huge risk of getting pooped on. I would think throwing it out or down would be much safer :)

Ouch - the poor bird feeder is getting stabbed by the fishing pole :) I guess he just had a bad time fishing.

Nice capture! The guy in the shorts does rather seem to be telling those birds off!

Great composition! Love the birds in the background!

A nice detail.

I hope the fisherman has better luck next time.
