It is with great regret that I cannot find a single pigeon in the little town where I live currently.............

Special thanks to Walter, Chris and Sue for their UA's on my upload Day 33,529 - the awards are truly appreciated.

Thanks for looking today,

Anne

Excellent composition and a beautiful B&W conversion. I especially like the low viewpoint.

Very few pigeons where I live, Anne, I think they are all in Trafalgar Square and St. Marks Square Grin. At least you found one for this excellent image Smile Carol

You have no idea how long I waited for that little pigeon to enter the scene Smile When in Bergen, I'm always on the hunt for quirky pigeon shots. This one was taken there too, but with a different camera.

Some great shots can be found in a train station, this being one of them! The conversion/processing is outstanding!

I spotted the pigeon first, then read on...
I like the fact that you got down low. This is life as seen by the crust-seeker.

I sometimes think the UK is overrun with pigeons. The POV you have used has provided a strong composition particularly with the pigeon.

Pretty much the Pigeon's eye view! Like the pov. Last time I visited Leeds station I have to say, I'd never seen so many Pigeons in a long time though that was back when our son attended Uni there which is quite some time ago.

As excellent shot which lends itself well to mono Anne, though I have a hankering to see it in colour too. The low POV does work well, unlike some others my eye was drawn first to VELCOMMEN TIL BERGEN and the arches, then the pigeon, and finally the gleaming carriages.
Rgds., Jim
PS. Despite all the time I spent along the west coast of Norway, I never made it to Bergen.......pity!
