Zebra...


Lisbon Zoo
 
A little tribute to the animal whose name was given to millions of pedestrian crossings around the world. This is my contribution to the City Daily Photo April theme day: Pedestrians Crossing.

A great idea. Fun! Original.
I never saw zebras from this angle. Do ya think their stripes rubbed off there on the inside part?
Pigeons finding some food?
Happy April 1.

Very unusual. Your photo also illustrates that zebras' stripes are individual and unique, like fingerprints.
