  1. Is that a colored photo or did you make it black and white? It's wonderful!

    WV: splathr - Better watch out so you don't step on the splathr those pigeons do so well.

  2. I suppose it's too much to ask that they're cleaning up after themselves, yeah?

    Great shot whatever they're doing!

  3. Perfect in B&W.
    ...but you do have to wonder exactly what they are eating.

  4. Great black/white of the little
    pesky burds. They are so flighty,
    but you caught them and viola...

  5. You caged those little rascals with this shot! They sure are messy little critters... I stirred up a flock of 'em the other morning, just riding by, and ended up cleaning crap off my bike frame for many, many minutes.

  7. When that was first loading I thought it was a bunch of dead pigeons. I was relieved to see they were very much alive. Great shot.

  8. Very nicely captured. Some things are just meant to be processed in black and white. Well done.

  9. This photo made me start laughing. Stupid pigeons. (I make fun of them often.) Lovely capture, though, and I enjoy the picture in black and white. Happy WW!

  10. The black and white is perfect. That's a realm I've not even considered yet, but you have it down to a fine art.

  11. I like the pigeons against the sidewalk in black and white.

  12. I admit that the black-and-white accentuates the patterns of the feathers & some of those are actually pretty, but nothing will get me to like a pigeon! Sorry.

  13. It's clear to me that they're all eating dedelsteins. The one at the top left can't be too hungry. He's only pecking at his. ;)

  18. The markings on their backs are lovely, unlike the markings they leave everywhere else! LOL

  19. I always wonder what they are pecking at.. sometimes it just seems like nothing.

  20. No I haven't found her contact lens, just keep looking!

  21. Henpecked was the first thing that came to mind. The splotches on the sidewalk remind me of the the walks at the school we last taught in...gum! Ugh!

  24. This is probably the only time I going to say anything nice about pigeons but your photos are just poetic.

  25. What a typical New York City scene LOL. absolutely perfect for wordless wednesday, nothing need be said.
    We see this so often that we pass by almost disgusted and never usually pay much attention, but here you have stopped them in time for us to see that these birds are really busy at something, perhaps eating and perhaps as busy as any of us walking hurriedly down the street. .
    Looks great as b&w.

  26. I think I have seen some of the same birds in San Francisco. Nice touch to make the pic in black & white. I'm surprised 3 of your 9 birds can't find food to eat. :D
