Does life imitate art or vice versa ?


This is one of my favourite photographs I made this year.  The similarity in form between the real life version and it’s inanimate counterpart is uncanny. The paving bricks  point the eye towards the fleeing gull while at the same time framing it’s flightless echo, the dropped fish ‘n’ chip container, the smear of ketchup on the ground,  a dropped serviette,the two tone checks in the back ground, in essence one of those chance and unrepeatable moments when a few simple elements harmoniously collide.
