A Year in Pictures – 18 March 2015 – Bird in Flight

Intending to obtain an image of 130 Fenchurch Street (otherwise known as Fountain House) I pointed my camera up from street level at its disciplined modernist façade. Looking at the photograph later I realised that a gull had flown briefly into shot and thereby established itself as the true subject of today's image.

Perhaps our tall buildings are all attempts to defy the pull of the earth and soar into the heavens like birds, but how prosaic our efforts seem in comparison to the ease granted to this gull as its birthright.
