I have seen some wonders in the world that make me wonder where I am in
this universe, wonders that shake my sense of what it is to be a man in
the world, disorienting me and making me reassess what it is to be a man
at all. And then there are simple things like blue-faced pigeons in the
park. I couldn't get a good picture of any due to a lack of sunlight
here, so I must rely on the efforts of others to give at least some
adequate substitute for what I saw. This photo is of a Peruvian pigeon,
not quite what I saw, but not your average European pigeon either. It
makes life strange to see such an ordinary thing as a pigeon in blue.
Blue-faced pigeon. Here is a link to a few dozen exotic pigeons, a pretty-much ordinary bird otherwise.
