Bird in Columns, Rome

After our tour of St Peter’s Basilica, my sister patiently waited while I amused myself by making a series of pictures of the omnipresent pigeons among the columns and crowds of St Peter’s Square. (She did, however, draw the line at chasing the pigeons through the columns on cue – not much of an assistant!)

This picture was always intended to be black and white – I like the combined abstraction of the monochrome and the movement.
