Lone gull at the end of the dock



First, let me apologize for those who read this regularly.  I’ve been in the hospital and had 2 hip replacements – 2 days apart. A part failed after the first one so they had to go back in.  And it’s hard to blog postings from my phone – so I’m catching up.

This scene was taken behind a restaurant in Machias, Maine.  The lone gull on the pier caught my eye, but when he scooted out to the end of the pier, that made the shot.

Just a guy with interests in photography, karate, and (sigh) work. I post one of my photos and a quote every day. I like to make a beautiful dent in the the negativity of social media. The photos are mine, so please don't reuse without permission. I hope you enjoy!

      Thanks, Thomas. It was an adventure. I watched a video of the original replacement(s). I’ve had both replaced some 20+ years ago. Now, we’re into “revisions” – basically replacing parts that wear out. It wasn’t fun, but my surgeon is top-notch and I’m back on my feet. Hopefully be on my own without a cane by the end of September.
