Life’s a Journey

Tis the dawning of a new day… To say I’m thrilled to be working again is an understatement. It’s been 5 years since I was fired from 3 consecutive jobs in Victoria, BC which led me down a path of self-discovery and a diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder. A few years went by where I wasn’t […]

Happy Accidents

Union Station, Toronto. The hub of travel connections to ports North, South, East, West offering train, bus, streetcar and subway services. Literally a madhouse of massive activity especially as it’s been under construction upgrades for over 2 years now. It appears it’s also a resting depot for a plethora of pigeons perhaps awaiting arrivals, or departures to lands far, far away or maybe just to connect with others. Most likely searching for their daily bread at the hands of human generosity.

I discovered these beauties outside the Bay St entrance the day I waited for the GO Transit bus to kindly bear me off to the funeral of a dear friends’ mother two hours away. I just fell in love with them what can I say. With their…mindfulness is the word that comes to mind. So peaceful and interesting in their unique individual characters.

The happy accident here is that while I was trying to capture the length of their chorus line chilling on the construction barrier fence, unbeknownst to me another pigeon approached from the North in search of a place to land which my camera (Samsung Galaxy S3 Smartphone) happily captured to my blissful ignorance. The ensuing results I present below including the originals for fun…amazing what a crop will achieve what? And a bit of editing 😉 I’m using Snapseed, my new favorite fun editing tool. May you enjoy.

I particularly like this edit because the foreground pigeon appears to be a stone sculpture.
