Empire State Pigeon

There are some pictures that simply take your breath away and that is certainly the case with this wonderful composition by Flickr user ZeroOne. The pigeon, looking over the majesty of New York seems completely unperturbed by the height at which s/he sits and even less impressed with the concrete and steel grandeur of Gotham. I love that juxtaposition though - this calm avian surveying us leading our busy lives - it really makes me want to slow down. In fact, I'm off to have a coffee and a contemplation.

I bet it would kill someone if it popped from that height.
