Girl Chasing Pigeons, Venice, Italy, photo by John Ecker | pantheon photography

GIRL CHASING PIGEONS, VENICE, ITALY:  I was in a laneway, off the beaten path near the Grand Canal, taking photos of laundry lines and pretty windows.  This little girl ran on ahead of her papa, scattering a clutch of pigeons that was feeding on the sidewalk.  It was one of ‘those moments’ when an unexpected scene appears before a photographer.  It occurred to me that this little girl and her father are among the dwindling number of people who actually call Venice their home.  The historic old city of Venice has a population of approximately 60.000 (2009) residents– down from about 120,000 in 1980.
