Looking Left, Looking Right

Wellington. April 2009. Ajr
I have dozens of photographs of "Ferns, the sculpture by Christchurch-based Neil Dawson, which hangs above Wellington's Civic Square, but these are two of my favourites - not so much for the work itself but for the little line of pigeons in the foreground, all turning their heads left and right in unison. It was as if one among them was giving the command. Just another of those quirky little moments that most people never see because they're too busy rushing about without ever really looking, without ever really appreciating the tiny details of life. For me, the beauty of life is in the detail - in the forgotten, the overlooked, the bypassed. www.ferns.co.nz
