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 . 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.
