Pigeons and Ducks and Elephants and Giraffes……December 2012

PIGEONS AND DUCKS AND ELEPHANTS AND GIRAFFES……

My pigeons have been lying about in the design of a book for a while now. I haven’t taken it any further because I felt there was just a few more shots missing. And then Stuart calls me up and says he is having another National pigeon show and did I want to come up and take some shots. I jumped at the chance and on a very snowy and flood warning day myself and Sam the assistant drove up to Yorkshire for the weekend. Not only were there pigeons, but some very handsome poultry too!

Here are some of the results and I hope to have ‘Darwin’s Pigeons’ – Volume 1, in print very soon.

Oh….. and to get away from the miserable weather we all flew off to Kenya for Christmas. Safari’s, Mango’s on the beach, got to kiss a Giraffe and the kids got to see their adopted Elephant ‘Sites’, at the Daphne Sheldrake Sanctuary. Nicely!
