Photo101: On the edge of its arrow slit

and moreover on the edge of my nerves.


This bird is not a pigeon, but still, it kinda look like one to me (I am a city girl!). I’ll never be able to fantasize on its beauty, because I simply hate pigeons. They used to stress all my Indian mornings with their unbearable coos, they would never ever miss my hairs the days I need them perfectly done, and they are so stupidly arrogant! Nothing to do with today’s assignment, but another reason why I immediately felt at ease and understood in NYC:

      Like for the challenge on the angles, took me a while to get into it. I prefer the comfort of rounds to the angles and edges. So at the end of the day, it came as a very interesting challenge to me, look a bit beyond my comfort zone.Thanks a lot Lucile for your kind words 🙂

        You’re most welcome. You may find yourself out of your comfort zone while with angles and edges but your creative mind is always with you, isn’t it? 😉

    I like the double meaning, the edge of the building and the bird perched on the edge… good interpretation!

      That s what I Eventually suspected 😛 thank you! Given your profile pict, the commuting life in London, you could only be an expert! You have a great style, you took me right to the tube while reading your last post. Your rhythm is awesome, and after reading, smiling at your picture, all of a sudden I realized that it s actually better to visit London as a tourist 😉 keep it up, loved reading you!
