Pic(k) of the week 24: Free like a bird !
Somewhat jet-lagged, I'm back in Dubai after a quick visit to Brisbane. Earlier this week my day job as an airline captain, took me to the capital of the Australian state Queensland, where I also attended the yearly World Press Photo 2010 exhibition. Because I hadn't planned any specific photography for the trip, I decided to travel light. My Nikon D700 with a 50mm 1.8 prime did the job.
On the way to the Brisbane Powerhouse (where the World Press Photo exhibit is held), I made this image of some seagulls flying by.
Beside being a Pic(k) of the week, it also has made it into my Gulls gallery.
