Only The Good – Gulls


Gulls in Flight

As we walked to the bus stop yesterday, we saw a man feeding the birds at the lochan.  The gulls were going absolutely crazy, so I stopped to take a few photos.  My challenge to you is to tell me what good you can find in this frenzied flurry.

The Only The Good project is to get people to look at the world in a different way, to acknowledge–if only for the brief time they do this exercise–that there is good in everything and everyone…to briefly change shadow to light.”

If you would like to take part, you can either leave a comment on this post which focuses on ‘only the good’ that you can see in the photo. If you have a blog and would like to participate you can

“Post an original photograph that may at first seem rather ordinary–a photo in which the good isn’t immediately obvious–and invite people to comment. A brief explanation of the photo’s subject, where it was taken, etc. may be provided. I urge you to use only original photographs so that copyright infringement is not an issue.”

    One of the good things about gulls is that they clean up everything – besides their own poop that is. If the man had not been feeding them – had just been dumping food scraps in the water for example, the gulls will eat every last scrap and leave it clean.

    Plus when I see gulls I’m reminded of the seagull scene in ‘Finding nemo’ where they all scream “Mine, Mine” and it makes me smile – for the first three years of his life my son was convinced that seagulls said “mine, mine, mine”!

    Yeah, I can vouch for the poop having been a recent seagull victim! And, you’re right, that is such a great scene in Finding Nemo. Thank you so much, Neomyth, for taking the time to find the good!
