Venice Beach, California. While walking back to the car I spotted this gull sitting on a tray placed on top of a garbage bin. He/she looked quite calm so I took a series of shots inching closer thinking the gull would fly away. It never did. These were the last two shots I took and I was less than 3 feet away (28mm angle of view on the Ricoh GR). In the end, the gull looked at me and pooped on the tray. That seemed a good time to leave.
I cleaned up the poop in Lightroom.
