  1. Is this New York city person correct in assuming he's behind a statue of the Queen?

    Fun haiga, especially if I see his lunch munch as being his fingers/nails.

  8. You have captured something of the guys mood. I like the pigeon coming in to land or take off - gives it movement

  9. That guy is really alone in his little world (and it does not seem like a happy place).
    Great poetry.

  10. Moody and alone but I think, not lonely. Nice lucky add-on with the bird's movement. Cherry on the frosting.

  14. I think he is useing thought control on the bird to get it to dance.

  15. Alone in his own thoughts except for the bird. Who feels lonely? the man, the bird, or perhaps the viewer.

  16. He is somewhere else or thinking of his love. Great capture of the moment...

  17. He is contemplating something, or perhaps studying the bird.
    A good shot.

    Alone we come
    and alone we go
    and, that is all
    i might add, we know
