Haiku and photograph by myself. As 9.11 approaches, there are news of new threats, and alterts issued mostly NYC and Washington areas. A few years ago, I went to LA. Going though the custom was much tougher and more time consuming than before. While in LA, I saw this seagull at a pier. The seagull seemed so engrossed in staring at the horizon that it did not notice me taking its photograph. Hope the watchful eyes will prevent any destructive attempts.
