Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Bird Man

Whenever we travel, my wife and I like to visit the local markets.  There is always a different variety of fresh fruit and vegetables which are different from those we normally see at home, as well as a different range of people amongst the visitors.

So it was at Nerang on the Gold Coast of Queensland.  As we wandered around the Sunday morning Farmers’ Market we came upon this fellow.

Here was a person who in all ways was a real character – hat, birds, accent, and all.  Obviously a regular at the market, he chatted to the stall holders on his rounds.  The white bird appeared to be moulting and looked somewhat scrawny, but this just added to the flavour of the overall package.
