Sunday Selections # 268
Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Andrew often joins in too.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections but this week I just have a small random selection of photos I found from 2013. You may have seen a couple of them already.
I'd been boiling eggs for sandwiches and when I began peeling them this one came apart to reveal a perfectly intact yolk.
this scrawny, crippled pigeon, the only brown one in a flock of well-fed, plump and glossy grey ones, managed to get himself up onto the seat, where the woman feeding the flock hand fed him for a while. Can you see how his beak is longer and curved? and he only had one leg, unless he was doing that trick birds often do, tucking one leg up and out of sight to get sympathy.
this is one of my favourite buskers, playing didgeridoo, tom-toms and sometimes beating a stick against the brown one lying by his feet there.
here you can see the bells and balls tied to his ankle to add to his music. He is sometimes accompanied by a girl playing violin, but I prefer to hear just him.
here's that pigeon again, you can see better how his beak is deformed and how skinny he is. The rest of the flock were bullying him away from the crumbs.
