photo essay: Birds of a Feather

Photo Credits: Bella Q



 

Last week, I took a break from people watching, and spent an afternoon near the duck pond in McKinley Park. Water fowl may not know a lot about fashion, having no closets to house their "it" bags, or this season's trending leopard prints & fun furs, but they do know a thing or two on style. Notice how diverse the crowd is by the duck pond. All sorts mingle and mill about, all dressed to express sartorial style of the species. Beautiful things, birds are. Much better watching than television. 

For a bird's eye view on people watching in Sacramento, check out the Street Style edition of Birds of a Feather.

I go a little crazy in my iPhoto setting. I adjust the contrast and play with the color saturation until it has the right quality. I was going for a painterly quality. And thank you!

Gorgeous. Birds are totally fierce! My uncle has some peacocks on his farm and I am kind of obsessed with watching them.

When I was a kid I used to feed the ducks at Stow Lake all the time with my grandmas. It was so fun! And ducks really are pretty. The babies are the cutest though...
