Pavarotti? Great facial expressions! #Wordless Wednesday #Seagull Shenanigans

Wordless Wednesday … with a twist.

Fellow blogger Dave ( commented on today’s post entitled “Pavarotti?” by suggesting: “You should ask your readers to submit thoughts on what his companion is thinking. He looks – well – embarrassed, to say the least!”

Over the course of several shoreline visits to the Detroit River in Wyandotte, I saw enough crazy Seagull antics to use the tagline #Seagull Shenanigans three times.

When I created this post, I came up with a ton of fun titles to call it, based on the Seagull with its mouth wide open and the deadpan look on the other Seagull’s face. If that wasn’t funny enough, the singing Seagull was wearing a very sheepish grin in the last shot.

So, among the post titles that sifted through my brain were:

“The Bad Boys of the Boardwalk”
“Pennies from Heaven”
“Catching snowflakes on my tongue”
“Bad joke or bad breath?”
“Gulls just wanna have fun” and …
“That takes a lot of gall, er … gull!”

So, while Pavarotti the Ring-billed Gull was screeching up a storm – what do YOU think his companion was thinking … is he embarrassed by his gull friend or perhaps he/she secretly covets that voice?


#Wordless Wednesday – allow your photo(s) to tell the story.

About Linda Schaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, so this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for four decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, though I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too. - Linda Schaub

    Ha! His companion looks disgusted. Maybe she is thinking “There he is, sounding off again!” 🙂

      Good one Laurie! I think the the look of disgust on the one Seagull’s face is so obvious, then the loudmouth has a silly expression on his face like “maybe I pushed the envelope too far!”

    I love the “Pavarotti” pose. I laughed out loud.

    I imagine the quiet seagull is thinking: ‘I’ll pretend I don’t know him…’
    ‘Oh, for goodness sake, he’s still showing me up. I hope I don’t bump into anyone I know’.
    ‘Oh, finally. He’s shut up. Peace at last.’

      Those are all great ideas Clare and any of them work. The loud screeching had people looking at it … what an attention seeker! I find that seagulls sometimes are just like humans with the antics and body language.
