I put this on my blog yesterday but seeing as I haven't done much photography lately I thought I'd upload it here too. Another candid from Saturday's day out with the EPZers. This chap had just got up to pay his bill and by the time he'd got back to his table the pigeons had moved in. I liked the bemused expression on the guy's face. Pity the bag was bright white but I quite liked the little scene anyway. And I know I've cut his head off. Don't care. TongueWink

Lovely and sunny here today. Got dog training later and I'll try to mow the lawn this afternoon while it's a bit dryish. Have a good day yourselves folks.

Pigeons are such a scourge but they do make excellent photographic subjects - I don't mind his head being lopped a bit; it is street photography after all!

They are such hungry Blighters. I wouldn't fancy eating off that table.

I like all the different players in this image, especially the pigeons eye-ing up the scene! Great!

Brilliant expression on the guy's face, Chris. And that pigeon that has turned its back on him, pretending not to have seen him as well gives marvellous juxtaposition!

Amazing how different were the things we saw!
Still downloading mine, something might appear in a week or so.
I have left a prominent fingerprint on my monitor to remind me of how my darkroom work sometimes turned out BlushBlushWink
Was a wonderful afternoon on Saturday. Will write more later!

It's the pigeons that add so much to this well spotted candid.
