Award Winner | Photo of the Day | October 10, 2012
In the golden city of Jaisalmer, India, there are many beautiful images to capture. I was walking throughout the city trying to capture beautiful memories of this beautiful city when I came across this pigeon waiting in the window. It reminded me of a fairy tale of a princess waiting in a window for her lost love. The pigeon kept waiting until I captured this shot and remained waiting after I walked along my way.
