Sky Rats: Surprisingly Interesting Photos of Pigeons

Last Updated on by

Getting a great photograph isn't always a factor of finding the most spectacular subject to shoot. While you might be forgiven for thinking that images of the humble pigeon could be quite boring, the fact remains that a good photographer can make an interesting photo of a mundane subject. These photographs of pigeons, affectionately known by many as “sky rats,” shows what can be done with some photographic skill.
