Seagull landing with the Bay Bridge in the background

My mother and sister were visiting from India and I had taken them around San Francisco. We were at the market outside the Ferry Building when I saw a seagull sitting on the ledge. The blue sky speckled with floating cotton-like clouds and the clear view of the Bay Bridge made a perfect backdrop for the bird. Just as I was about to take the shot, the seagull decided to change its perch and I caught its graceful brisé-like hop mid-flight.
