Writes the photographer, Ukrainian artist Anatoly Melaniy: "The photo was taken in June 2020. This is the entrance of our house. I went up to the apartment and saw pigeons cooing on the windowsill against the backdrop of the same house as ours. I was also happy about this bird's joy of love. It's been exactly a year since we moved into this house, to a new apartment. I asked them to wait so that they don't fly away until I get the phone. You rarely have time to photograph such shots. And everything turned out."
