ARCHIVE: STILL LIFE 24 – TWO WOMEN IGNORING A PIGEON (MONO)


Two women in Bristol city centre purposely ignoring a pigeon that, after all, was only trying to be friendly; photographed from the upper deck of a bus, 24 Apr 2013.

And before you ask โ€“ this outcome was not in my mind when I took the shot.

ARCHIVE STILL LIFE

This is a new category on this blog – Archive Still Life studies.  The Still Life definition will certainly be followed loosely – e.g. some studies may only have been made “still” by the split second opening of the camera’s shutter – and my objective will be to use as many different types / genres of subject matter as possible.  Some images will be Minimalist and, in general, I try to make simpler images, rather than cramming them with visual content.

Some new Still Life studies will (hopefully!) continue to appear.

  1. Are they ignoring the pigeon or just oblivious to their surroundings? Both look like theyโ€™re elsewhere. Donโ€™t appear to be living in the moment. Far off. No joy.

    Itโ€™s sad.

    • No, ignoring the pigeon is just my bananas take on things, LOL! >>> imagination like an unguided missile!!! You’re absolutely right, they’re not living in the moment, but in some other place or places, that do not appear to be joyful. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. And they are ignoring each other as well.. maybe because they have different cultural backgrounds.. and the pigeon is a symbol for love and harmony.. ๐Ÿ™‚ This outcome wouldn’t have been on my mind either.. ๐Ÿ˜€ Cheers for the weekend!
