Visual Blog


Attention fellow bloggers. Since I'm forcing you all to endure my reading material this week, I thought it would be fun to take a moment and post my version of a visual blog. Besides, I wouldn't be me if I didn't try to entertain you at least once. I practice photography as a hobby, and I so wish I would have taken this picture.
Who says nature doesn't have a sense of humor?
Ay, get off my rock!!!

I'm sure you all have experienced these visual blogs. Every artist draws emotion from pondering a picture.
Man: He decided to scale a mountain so he could say he performed a spectacular feat. Little did he know he'd happen upon the seagull's nest. The red helmet he wore to be spotted from the ground did nothing to help him blend in. He has peed his pants and a little extra for good measures. Shaking out his leg isn't doing the trick. He is currently cursing out the birds. How do we help this guy break free? What would you do in his place?
Seagulls: For years they've lived on the meager rations of man. The occasional bread crumb or potato chip has long since failed to hit the spot. Now, in a secluded spot provided by nature they can finally feed on human elixir.
"Pull harder, or we'll have to move the nest."
So tell me what you're feeling. Fear? Tender cozy appreciation for birds?
This would make a great ride at a water park?
Someone toss the little peckers a piece of bread and be done with it?


  1. My immediate take on this?

    Some mountains, even though "they're there," are best left UNscaled.

    Yikes. The dude in the foreground looks like he's got some serious attitude.

  2. @Bryce. He does look like he's ready to peck out an eyeball.

  3. LOL, ow, ow! Scary. No wonder he's keeping his head down, to save the ol' eyeballs! Man, I don't envy him here. I'd start making my way DOWN if I were him in this position!

  4. @Carol. Yup, and I do love seagull, but I don't think I'd try to tackle these guys.

  5. Don't mess with the birds! Did this man learn nothing from Alfred Hitchcock? Look at the malicious intent in that gull's eyes. Go back, man. Go back.

  6. @L.G. Hitchcock definitely came to mind here...except these birds look bigger and meaner.

  7. You say you wish you took this picture? I don't think I would have wanted to be up there with him--trying to save him while fending off the starving birds. No, I'm kind of glad I hate taking pictures.

  8. That is hilarious. Seriously, what options are there in that situation??

  9. I'm fairly certain this could be the animal kingdom's version of 300. Look at that bird. You know it's trying to say, "This. Is. SPARTAAA!"

    ...Or not. :)

  10. @Desert Rocks. I would be in a helicopter throwing something at the birds, most definitely not on the rock. I'm scared of heights...^-^...

    @Rebecca. I know it. It's a no win situation. It's either up or down, but it was too funny to pass up. :)

    @Carrie. I love it. Never thought of it that way. Definitely a Spartan bird. :)

  11. *gasp* What a picture! Makes me think of the Alfred Hitchcock movie "The Birds" -- the stuff of nightmares for me as a child. *shudders*

    You have a wicked sense of humor, Laila. =D
