Pigeon holed

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 5 September 2009 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

These are the baskets used to transport homing pigeons to continental France or Spain where the birds will be released to fly home. They belong to enthusiasts who have pigeon lofts in the West Park, South Shields.
