Pigeons are an animal I just can’t grow to like. I am sure many people feel this way. They are called flying rats for a reason. This group of pigeons was particularly aggressive. There were a few bakeries and kiosks selling food in the area, and people were dropping crumbs and feeding the pigeons. More and more pigeons came looking for food and it almost seemed they were chasing the people away.
Capturing the essence of the moment is the challenge of photography. I tried here to use a low perspective because it was the pigeons ruling the world and I thought I should show the picture from their perspective. The human beings in this photograph are just in the background. I shot this whole day in black and white, so no conversion was required.
