Today, two white doves, a symbol of the hope for peace, were released from a window in the Lateran Palace by children standing next to the Pope… and immediately attacked by other birds. It happened, not just in front of the Pope, but before a large crowd that had gathered in St. Peter’s Square to hear him give the Angelus Prayer.
I remember seeing it years ago. Then I totally forgot about it. And then I remembered the idea, but couldn’t remember which bird or animal it was. Today someone reminded me…
Working in technology, I find that many decisions and plans are made on very similar basis.
Politically careful among you can change the title to ‘male chicken’…

I was photographing this duck in the park today and made a lot of similar frames. I didn’t want to throw them all out, so I decided to play with all of them in Gimp. I like ‘Pekin Duck’ variation best of all.
