What's that perched in the tree to the left of the tower?

...a bird...?

It's almost certainly a wood pigeon, which are legion here. I wasn't really close enough to see for sure, just close enough to use it as a photographic element. :)

Beautiful photos! *bumps Ireland up a few spots on list of possible destinations for summer trip*

Nice work, I particularly like the last one.

Oo! Love the "Flare" and "Thirst" ones, particularly.

That Looks Familiar
I think I recognize the swan, but who and where's the statue?

Beautiful pictures! Is that swan as huge as it appears, or are the surrounding statuary etc. smaller than they seem? (I've only seen swans in photos.)

The swan is as huge as it appears. The statue behind it is about...5-7 feet away, and is a normal-sized or slightly larger than life man sitting at the end of the bench. The bird visible at the tip of the fanning swan's wings is part of the statue, and is a normal-sized pigeon. Swans are very large birds. :)

I'm duly impressed. I'm doing a photo-a-day project for the first time, and while I've taken a photo every day, mine feel very boring in comparison.

Beautiful work. The moody atmosphere suits the buildings. But the swan is especially beautiful, you set up the angles perfectly, the lighting is great, and you captured it at just the right moment for position and posture. Well done, and thanks for sharing! :)
