  1. Nice action shot, Rudolf 🙂

    I was just thinking how the color version would look?

  2. Very good phot, just wander what he will do with the pidgeon, eat it?

      A ‘lucky’ shot, I was just walking away from the bazaar where I had been taking photos of fishmongers, coffee grinders etc, and I managed to get this one frame
      No idea what became of the pigeon…!
