‘You can take a photo of me…’, the snaps of the curious gull on the beach ~撮られたがりのジョナサン~

This summer was not as hot as the usual summers in Sydney.

I missed (or almost forgot) making my typical beach time packing beach throw, sunscreen, and the straw hat together with some favourites in the basket.

So I took a long morning walk the other day to soak my foot and appreciate nature and the moment where I felt.

While I started being space out on the beach and just enjoyed the touch of water and sand, a seagull caught me in the eyes on its landing to the edge of the cement pipe.

The lone seagull stood afar.

I enjoyed taking some morning snapshots.

The seagull lost my perspectives, that every look I gave to, it came closer to me.  It was like, as if it never paid attention to me existed there, but it never got out of frame of the view.

It even looks like the gull might have made posing to help my snap looking better.

Finally the gull turned to (the last shot) look at me straight.

‘Sure, you can take a photo of me’

….Is that what you just said to me?

After the last shot I caught, the gull flew away from me.

I wondered what the gull would have commented if I could show it the last shot and ask….

朝の散歩に砂の上を歩いていたら一羽のカモメが目の前のパイプの先端に降り立つのが見えた。

その日は薄曇りで風が出ていたのだけれど、その風を浴びているジョナサンは(カモメさん許して)一瞬孤高にさえ見えた。

私もスマホで写真などを撮りながらふと気づくと、確実に私との距離を縮めているじゃあありませんか。

その都度私の方などはもちろん見ることもなく、独り風を楽しんでいる風だったけれど、ついには私との距離をほぼ目の前に詰めて来た。

そして、グッとこちらをみる。

あれ、ポーズ決めてる?

「撮ってもいいよ」

。。。。って今そう仰いました?

最後の写真撮った後、ジョナサンは何処かへ飛んで行きました。

この写真、見せることができたら、なんてコメントくれるかな。

という朝の一コマ。

End of summer

Up, up, up…!

I trained my iPhone up on me in the lift like a fish tank.

Giddy, giddy, giddy…!!

My colleague stood apart from the glass to make sure himself safe and healthy.

Murmuring on Saturday morning

So, as mentioned you on my previous post, my phone was upgraded to one of those cutting edge.
However, I did not realise initially that my mobile phone plan also have to ‘upgrade’ to something more high in availability along with the hardware.
When i was using iPhone 6, I was subscribing very basic BYO (SIM only) plan with a carrier, which 4GB Data / month, and it was enough.  However, likely because my phone turned to be the one with high spec, more data seemed to have been processed upward / downward, and my limit was reached up to full for the month at its 4th days. 😀
I decided to change something a fair plan however provided by an another carrier, I heavily relied on wifi environment almost entire this week.
In addition, I have got office move past weekend.  The new workplace is ok (or is better than previous office), but due to their strict security policy they lie in networks and internet (which is healthy for the business we do), they restrict accessing many sites including WordPress.  🙂
My last resort, home, kept me hectic all this week for various bits to do to clear off and did not make a time to post a blog at all.
Anyway, I will stop making my excuse, but just wanted to express my thanks to you all for your always support, liking my posts and leaving comments, with my sincere apologies for not responding to sooner or not check your posts.
Yesterday, I got my new SIM with new plan activated.  Now time to start catching up..  🙂

Snapshots of Sydney CBD

…with my new iPhoneXR.

I have upgraded my phone first time in four years.  I quite enjoyed my iPhone 6 but it was getting harder and harder to keep up the software upgrades.

It’s time to farewell.

Thank you iPhone 6 for being my always buddy supporting my everyday life.  You made me easy to connect to the world, and you made me addict sometime too.

Now, here are the random test shots I caught with XR…, I like the outcomes and I will look forward my life with this guy as long as it stands.
