[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
"Oh Oh, Don't look now - but there's a pigeon on your head!"
This was taken at Trafalgar Square in London, where people and pigeons gather to look at one another, and where the pigeons are always looking for a hand out.

This image reminds me of Photographer who documented life in the streets of New York City- Helen Levitt- 1940's. Yes it's humourous but also has a quality of life on that particular day.

This photo is hilarious, and brings back memories of my last trip to England. Great photo, considering it was so old! I love the little girls shoes. Very effective how both children balance the photo with red and blue. Well seen Joan!

I love this shot Joan - fantastic colours and wonderful composition. You can almost feel what it would be like if you were among the pigeons, so to speak. The frame suits this one very well too. Great shot.

Thanks for sharing this Joan, it is very nostalgic for me, as my family and I used to spend much time at Trafalgar Square, so this picture makes me a little homesick.
Anyway great shot.

I love this classic shot - and classic it will continue to become as the war on pigeons has removed 95% of them.

Good photodocumentary shot.
BTW, do you know these kids? I just got a lecture from a teacher after I took a picture at a London train station that had some school boys in it for not getting the parent's permission first "in this day and age!"

A funny capture of lots of pigeons. I really like how the girl looks like she does not want to disturb the bird on her head. Thanks for sharing.

A nice picture of pigeons. The girl seems to be carefull not to disturb the one on her head.
The compo is well done, so are the colors. Nice scene!
