London, England


Trafalgar Square -- Just beyond this colony of pigeons, to the left of the picture at the northeastern corner of the Square, is the Church of St Martin-in-the-Fields. The neo-classical building, part of London's urban renewal after the Fire of 1666, is best known to music lovers worldwide as the home of the Academy, a chamber orchestra that made a string of memorable recordings in the 1980s and '90s under Sir Neville Mariner.

Eleven years ago, I came upon a group of homeless (or runaway) youths at the steps of St Martin. When I came back to them with a loaf of sliced bread, my charity was refused. "There's nothing to go with it," one answered.

This photo was taken with a Nikon F100 with f2.8 28mm Nikon AF D lens, and Fujicolor NPH135 ISO 400 film.
