Birds on Things

I take pretty much the same walk every day, but every day the walk is different. Cars move. Signs are put up. Graffiti appears and then it is washed away. I see the man with the pug. I hear the two women talking in accented English. I see new blossoms, new landscaping, new construction, new destruction. Or I don't. Repetition and revision. Jazz every day.

Seen May 10, 2012 on Menlo Place, Berkeley, California. 

The title for this post is a reference to the Portlandia sketch, "Put a Bird on It."

Thanks for the much needed laugh today. I saw that Portlandia sketch a while back, and have never been able to look at Etsy quite the same way ever again. Hilarious pigeon sign too. I've been thinking of getting a more portable camera (I only have a DSLR and no smart phone) so I can take snaps of minutiae during my day. This is great encouragement to finally do it.
