Boy and Pigeons

Posted by

I don't know why kids are so fascinated with hundreds of pigeons congregated in one place and while do seem transfixed by the thought of catching one, I don't know what they do if they actually got one...

Like yesterday, this was another day of shooting where I was able to linger in one place and observe all the activity around me. This time it was a square in the Ortaköy area of Istanbul, Turkey.

Pigeons flying is a great scene but seen before. Here I love that curious look on the boys face. It's so original.

He seems very interested and investigating. Shows mother's little irritation: one strap has dropped :)
