This is the very centre of old town in Cracow - old market square. One of attractions are just pigeons - a lot. Children love them, they are so surprised they can apporach them so close.
This photo is processed maybe too strong... The light was not very good, I tried to make it more vivid. The effect are grain and sharping artifacts. I'm not glad of colors too. OK, stop complaining. I'm posting this because there is something very cute for me in that scene - a girl and birds so close, they are not afraid of each other, even if after few seconds she gets scared...

Don't you worry ! It's a lovely picture !
See how all attention goes to the cup, how the heart on the girl's sweater is bordered and framed by the pigeons and the girl's chin, and so on...
Personally, I think pigeons are a pest to the city... and there's nothing to do about it... exept... stop feeding them :-S
