Doin’ The Pigeon


After a recent shopping trip to Belconnen (suburban canberra) chris and I reflected on our purchases: 7 second-hand books, 1.2kg of corned beef, 1 packet of sausages, 1 pretty vintage food container and a book about pigeons. It reads like a witch’s shopping list (all it needs is 3 spider’s legs, a rat’s tail and some seasoning), but I think this little collection of images are strangely beautiful. I particularly like the mangy pigeon feathers against the background colours – the series is both humorous and inspiring – it appeals to me in a way I can’t describe!
