The Pigeon Man

The Pigeon Man

Instead of going to an amusement park or some far out place – like kids do now – my mother would take me to Dam Square in Amsterdam to see the pigeon man. We bought some seeds from him and let the pigeons crawl over us in search of the seeds we had just bought. The original pigeon man of my youth also carried a Leica camera and occasionally we had our photo taken by him. Today there is not just one pigeon man but at least 5 pigeon men are fighting with each other to get the business.
