Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at

    His feet were probably frozen to it!!!
    Poor pigeon!!
    Great capture Chris!!! Are you keeping warm?

  • Since my trek through the snow around the city the other day I have returned to hibernation! So yes I’m keeping warm thank you. :-) Other pigeons were bathing in a frozen fountain so I don’t think they are bothered by the cold, he just seemed to like that little mountain of snow. How are you coping with the winter over there? Thanks very much for stopping by. Cheers.

    Gone a bit mild on us at the moment…which means it is grey, overcast and about as much fun as a cold cup of over stewed tea…..
    I do love your pigeon!!

    Thanks very much Constanza, for the encouragement and for the great comment. Cheers.
