Luis: Bushwick Brooklyn
I have been watching the circling pigeons from Maria Hernandez Park for sometime, hoping to meet the guys who keep them. Today I talked my way up on to one of the roofs, with three big coops and four guys. Luis, who keeps most of the birds, was a great host, and loved the camera.
Here he is holding a baby. The man knows and loves pigeons. They are beautiful to watch circling overhead, but even more amazing up close.
