Photographer's Note

This scene was captured one early spring evening, on the west bank of the Rhine river, in the small town of Andernach, not far from Koblenz in Germany. I think it illustrates nicely the relations between society and an individual. As you see, the flock mentality is quite strong among these gulls, but there still is one bird who prefers not to share the railing with the other 16, but to sit proudly on the ground. His friends hold his place for him though, in case he changes his mind...

I have converted to sepia, because there wasn't much colour there anyway, and I thought sepia would fit these light conditions. On the other bank you can see the church tower of the village of Leutesdorf. This is also the first post from Andernach on TE. Although it cannot be seen here, it is a nice old town with several old monuments preserved.
