Friday Foto

Home Depot birds

Ever since our mammoth birthday re-design, we’ve been neglecting one of Kingstonist’s greatest traditions: the Friday Foto. Basically, it’s a chance for us to feature an image from one of our Flickr friends. Since we started running with the idea, I’ve come to discover that there are truly some amazing photogs out and about in Kingston. Don’t believe me? See for yourself by checking out our Flickr contacts.

Today’s image was generously provided by Gangie, who snapped a shot of pigeons in some big box hardware store (2 points to the person who identifies the big box brand). Ever since we bought our house last summer, I seem to be spending more and more of my time in these places. Although I always hear the chirp and call of song birds overhead, I must admit that this is the first time I’ve spotted winged rats pigeons on the floor. And how appropriate, they’re right beside the bird seed. Keep chirpin’ Big Bird, it’s the weekend!

  • Home Depot.

    Speaking of Friday Foto’s, what are your thoughts about a Kingstonist photo contest?

  • I am definitely open to hosting a photo contest. In fact, I think we suggested it (here) last September. In my mind, if the submissions are coming from Kingstonians, then the public should also be the one’s who pick the winner. Perhaps we can get something together for May. I think there are many poll app’s out there, and I’m always willing to kick in a few bucks for a prize.
