    some of you may remember this guy from a post several months ago. ran into him again. seems he shows up behind the national gallery of art everyday at 5 p.m. to feed pigeons and squirrels out of the back of his late model mercedes. as you can image, he attracts many an onlooker with cameras in hand. if you get too close and disrupt the pigeons he gets mad at ya....so far he's let me close without saying anything. he doesn't appear to get pooped on and keeps fairly clean throughout the feedings.

    Excellent series! I think the last two are my favs!!! Nice job of capturing emotion in the mans face in each shot :) You've got the black and white conversions down pat!!! Just don't try and pass these off as crows :lol:

    Awesome shots buddy. The last one is really cool. But the second one really shows his devotion to the birds. Very well done sir.

    Wow this site sure has some dedication to birds. Nice images, i really like the second and last one. I would be pretty scared if i were surrounded by a bunch of birds like that. :confused:

    Excellent series Jon. I love that first one, really makes me feel like I'm seeing this guy from the pigeons perspective.
