The dove of Peace seeks an opening, searches for a window of opportunity.

I like the symbolism and metaphor you invoke in this picture, Dina. Now, who would/could open that window and let the dove in?

This reminds me of a Leonard Cohen song in which one line is
"The Dove will never be free." A beautiful photo, Dina. Petra

That is one of the most beautiful pictures I've seen... I'd love to have it framed, too!
Doves are probably my favorite birds... mainly for their sounds!

Mines up at Prairie Visions!

Beautiful picture. I saw white doves at the Western (Wailing) Wall and while we were having communion at the Garden Tomb a dove came down and perched itself on a branch not far from our Asst. Pastor. Special moments. Thanks for sharing this picture. JC
