hints, allegations and things left unsaid...
On a cold, cloudy day in London, I came across a sea-gull that was as curious about me as I was about it. There is also a good likelihood that it was interested in the crumbs of chocolate-waffle being eaten by people all around me. Still; at least in this particular picture, it seems to be asking – “hey what’s that black thing slung around your neck?”
Love the tone of the photograph, and above all, the title! :)

That bit of motion blur on one of the legs adds so much to this shot.
The dull monotones create a great ambience.
A winner surely. :)

Your gull-friend is an exact mirror image of John Abraham's gull-friend! Cool! Take a look!

I have personally tried taking shots of birds and can appreciate the clarity / focus of this one. Not an easy job, mate!
You use any specific techique?

There is something distictly...feminine about this particular gull, n'c'est pas?

Wonderful tones and shadows. You must have been very, very still! I've tried photographing birds enough to know they fly at the slightest sound - and I'm clumsy enough for everyone in the world! :-)

Thanks Kaushal! The title incidentally, came from the girlfriend :)
Thanks Avishek! The low lighting conditions left me no choice but to use a slow shutter speed and hence the blurred moving leg - a blessing in disguise :)
Hey Inky, will the lady now see a gull when she looks in the mirror or will it be the other way round :)
Thanks Dhar! Just a little bit of patience. Plus gulls and pigeons are usually stiller than say sparrows - that helps :)
The gracefulness and poise I'd say.
Thanks Extempore. The gull did most of the standing still, plus the crumbs of waffles nearby kept its attention from me. But then gulls and pigeons do not mind human presence as much as a lot of other birds!

Nice photo tones.. My first impression was that the birdy was peeing, doggy style ;-))
