Unlike us humans the seagulls are free and time does not pressure their life on earth; their minutes do not “hasten to their end ” . One may experience life clearer through a lens, as the most valuable moments may be captured and enjoyed forever. The photo was taken during the winter months of last year in Font Ghadir, Sliema. My objective was to capture the seagulls in their natural habitat without any urban structures obstructing the photograph. Personally I believe I succeeded in doing just that.

The discharge of untreated waste water is a potential health and environmental hazard. Sewage can lead to oxygen depletion, thus killing several marine creatures. Moreover, raw sewage outfalls can have a significant negative impact on coastal areas. These photographs show picturesque views of Wied Znuber- Hal-Far. As a young student, it is very difficult for me to imagine how in the past a sewage outfall was located in this area making this scenic spot unattractive to tourists and locals. One of the photographs shows two helpless dogs which were abandoned in this area in a stagnant pool of sewage. Fortunately, these were later rescued. Fortunately, in the past few years, a new sewage treatment plant was constructed at Ta’ Barkat- limits off Xghajra. Eventually, the outfall at Wied Znuber is no longer in operation. This was certainly a step in the right direction towards having cleaner seas.
