"A woman chaperones a small child, barely visible to her right who attracts a large gathering while feeding the pigeons in the Piazza del Duomo, the large square in front of the grand Duomo Cathedral in Milan. Traditional Italian signage and imagery mark this fascinating picture while the blurred images of birds in flight give true sense of motion and bring the scene to life. I can almost hear and feel the flutter of wings as the brids frenzy to feast on presumably fresh baked Italian bread, as I would like to imagine."
(Sean Black, son of James Black)
