How the Photo was Taken

I took this photo with a Fuji X100 (23mm, f2 lens). As a street photographer I never alter my images. It’s a candid photograph showing a moment of everyday life, that lasted only for a second.

Photo Location

During my recent trip to Morocco, in spring 2017, I stopped for a few days in Essaouira. Th coastal town in the west of Morocco is not only "the windy city", but also a city of cats. One morning after sipping a fresh orange juice on one of the stands close to the harbour, I witnessed a special encounter between 2 cats and a seagull and was luckily prepared to record this special moment.
