Pic(k) of the week 7: Hungry birds
Today I wanted to use my Friday off (Friday equals Sunday in the Gulf region), to go out and shoot for this weeks "Pic(k) of the week". I did have a few creative ideas in mind, but unfortunately a Shamal is blowing over the UAE today with widespread dust and a limited visibility. Outsiders call this a sandstorm. Anyway, no outside shooting for the time being.
Browsing through my un-edited images of the last few months, I bumped into this shot of gulls being fed by somebody at Dubai Creek. The caption "Hungry Birds" came to mind in similarity to the famous iPhone/Android game "Angry Birds".
