Gotta love those pigeons in the Park.
Great series of shots, Daryl. :D
Nice. I like the way you reveal it to us slowly, as each photo in the series peels back another layer.
What a view in monochrome-great shot and have a nice day.
Ha-ha, here has become pigeon's heaven. : ) Healthy Life & Marvelous world
beautiful series....would agree with robin...
I go with Robin on this - really like the close-up though. Ideal in mono.
I agree super series beautifully presented as well...
Wonderful, as always. I love the bird and its shadow!
Or is it a shadow?
I love how birds in the city make our stuff their home. Kind of like the wrens on my porch!
Remember the Maine! The bird really makes this. Awesome series! (I'm assuming this is the battleship Maine it's memorializing?)
Love the sculptures in Central Park. Nice photo of this one!
when I scrolled from the first, where the contrast on the face is pure art, to the second - where the pigeon is perched I just laughed out loud!!the pigeon looks so perfect, yet silly on top of this magnificent statue
Don't you think the artist would freak seeing his work become a perch?
Those pigeons are too wonderful.
So new york. no respect for cement monuments. Such range of black-white in those pigeons. Great shot!
Pigeons today...they just don't respect anyone!
Oh, that face--the names. And then da boid (is that a shadow, or a crow?), and his buddies. I'm with Robin; great series!
Really good. Excellent!Have a great week.Regina
i must say the pigeon is simply perfection...lol.great perspective ms. daryl on this most beautiful sculptural piece. but you know i love them.
I love this -- especially the first extreme closeup.I left a blog award for you over on my page: http://www.texasredbooks.com/2009/07/humane-award.html
Birds do seem to like him a lot! :) Love the series!
I especially like the bird on his hand. Looks like he's a magician!Beautiful sculpture and photos as always.
Statues and monuments lend themselves to creative photography - especially in monochrome. With the sove as an added attraction. Is it supposed to be Apollon?
really cool! i love the detail shots of the first two!
His hand's obviously shaped to be a bird perch!I did try out my shots in black and white, but it made them too cold looking, I think :)
Nice sculpture and it looks as if the birds think so too!
That's a beautiful sculpture and the birds add a wonderful touch.
I see what you mean re. stepping back :)I do like how you reveal more and more of the shape (and the pidgeons).I do have less close takes of the thistle, but they're in colour.
Lovely sequence. The sculptural details are amazing - a fitting memorial.
The pigeon sitting on the hand is super!
with slow anticipation...you reveal the story...:)
Nice set of B&W. When I first looked at it, I went "Huh?" What's this all about.Then I remembered the Maine!Heh. Heh.Now, I agree with all you said about commenting. Do I do that? No. Heck I don't even have word verification, which I think is unnecessary 'cause all you have to do is reject a nasty comment...Now...the other thing you didn't mention were the blogs where I've got to enter my name, email, website, followed by word verification, etc.Sometimes, it's too much and I'm trying to get to all my favorites and thus I simply don't have time to go through all the fooferah.Now, I sure hope I get a "clever and personal" response via email. Heh. Heh.And I hope you're day is just getting better and bette
Wow!Daryl...The first shot here must be a topseller! Big canvas in everyones diningroom, if you ask me :)The texture is amazing and the perspective!And.. You looked up, again! ;)Brilliant work!Anna
Well done, Daryl!
He's beautiful. (And I wouldn't mind him in real life!)
Great views for us to enjoy! I think statues look better in mono than full color. And what would birds do without statues?! Thanks for stopping by at my MM...
Just stunning Daryl, esp that first shit.
This monochrome monday made me smile! I love your presentation!
I love all the pigeons.
He is quite photogenic isn't he? I took a few pictures of him while I was there...Great shots Daryl! He looks great in black & white =)
Remember the Maine! ;-)
Wow! That's all I have to say about that. Congrats on the Pop Tart Award from S.S.
