Photographer's Note

Lonely pigeon, midway between the depths of the subway in Los Angeles and the soaring height of the skyscrapers above.

(yes, we have a subway/metro here, although relatively small by other big cities' standards. This photo is shot while riding the escalator upwards. OK, I actually had to walk back down the stairs and wait a minute to catch him in flight)

This reminds me of the "Under the Bridge" song lyrics by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, written about LA.....especially the first verse:

"Sometimes I feel
Like I don't have a partner
Sometimes I feel
Like my only friend
Is the city I live in
The city of angels
Lonely as I am
Together we cry"

Lonely despite all the people and hustle and bustle around
