I was tagged by the ever funny Katy from Whatever to participate in the six, six, six meme. You know, the one where you go to your sixth photo folder, find the sixth photo, blog about it, and then tag six people to do the same.
Well, in case you hadn't noticed, I tend to cheat with memes. I always have to find some way to twist it so it will fit into my sick little scheme. Whatever that is. This time I began with all the good intentions in the world to this one correctly. But the sixth photo in the sixth folder was actually a photo of Diego at a playdate that I already blogged about a couple of summers ago. Nothing too significant. And I certainly wouldn't want to rerun a photo or a post.
So, I did the next best thing. I looked through my folders and came across a photo that I had intended to blog about, but never did.
This surreal photo was taken in Mazatlan. One of Diego's favorite passtimes there is to sit in the plaza next to the cathedral and feed the pigeons and doves. There are so many of them all swarming all around that if you have even the mildest aversion toward birds at all you would get a severe case of the willies and scurry into the cathedral for sanctuary. Giancarlo was shooting a whole series of photos while Diego fed the birds but we didn't realize what this one was like until after we got home.
Look at the bird's face! The eyes are staring right at you, intending to fly right up to your head and peck your eyes out.
