i took a photo of this pigeon seconds before another obnoxious tourist scared him away.  i think he needs a name.  any suggestions?

and then here's the ubiquitous shot of the building itself

and of the tower- i like this one, very ominous

God how did you and the tourist get up there? Brandy seems like a fitting name. Or maybe Icarus.

Looks like a Roarke to me.  He looks all powerful, yet humble.  Like he's contemplating his vast domain and likes what he sees.  Heh.  I just reread my sentence and it seems totally weird that I'm saying that about a bird.  But that's really what he looks like to me!

That's a seriously awesome picture.

I love this shot! I would buy a print for my living room wall! I love crows and ravens and I vote for Roarke.

That's an awesome picture! How did you get it? It was pretty well fenced off up there from what I remember. The pigeon is really nicely framed by the sky... nice shot indeed.
