the bird man

this man is selling peacock feathers in tottenham court road. he doesn’t speak much but did allow me to take his photo for the website for 50p.
moments before i’d seen a business man wearing a black cloak and an eye patch looking very bizarre. the two people passed within a few centimetres of each other and i half expected them to explode and/or suddenly disappear.
but they didn’t. which is lucky. otherwise i wouldn’t have got this picture for you.

  1. i’m thinking about getting a peacock now that i know i could sell the feathers for that much… that’s like a buck a piece.
    how fast do you think peacocks churn out tail feathers? do you suppose i could put them on some sort of an assembly growing line?
