Photographer's Note

Another feature from my series of minimalistic photos.

In every Turkish town there is a square with the nation's flag and a statue of Mustafa Kemal Atatrk, founder and first President of the Turkish republic. This happens to be in the Turkish part of Nicosia (Lefkoşa) on Cyprus, but the flag and the statue are there just the same. A pigeon is taking a rest on the President's head.

It's just a snapshot I never thought much of until now, when I searched my archive for the most uncomplicated compositions.

I have cropped this slightly on the right side for better balance of thirds. It will probably look better in a new tab.
