Captured down a side street in the heart of Venice.

Natural light, no crop, no edit other than conversion to b/w.

Not long ago, Venice was chock full of plump pigeons that enjoyed an endless buffet from tourists buying bags of seed and scattering it all over San Marco Square. Today, they have removed the feed stands and replaced them with signs everywhere banning the feeding of these most expressive characters. I realize a lot of people hate pigeons, claiming they are dirty and a nuisance. I, personally, have a soft spot for all creatures. Especially those that get a bad rap.

The world is full of magical photo ops…

All you need to grab them is a zest for life, an eye for the extraordinary and that trusty camera of your choice.

Raise the sturdy weight of it to your face … close one eye then … lower your finger upon the shiny black button… hold your breath then… hear that hypnotic click and suddenly, dynamite explodes! the stars collide! and maybe, just maybe you’ve captured a magnificent moment in time… How thrilling is that?!?

    If I was there I’d still sneak in a few seeds for them….nice photo Sis…the birds look skinnier than they probably would have, but they can always fly on to somewhere else and get fed. Well done pretty lady XXXXX
