The Pigeon — Photos (1984-2012)

I love pigeons. I feed them every day.

The Take Off

I printed this photo in negative mode and it came out with one of my favorite color combinations.

Pigeons Eating Breakfast.  I’ve discovered that pigeons like cornflakes, so I give them some, and I mix it with oats.  They get tired of just stale bread crumbs.

The contrast between the urban world and the natural world has always interested me. It’s as if nothing can be so completely urban as to keep all nature out.

The Trio
