Wellington, New Zealand, 2010:  Pigeons are part of the bird family Columbidae. They are an incredibly adaptable bird, having now colonised most parts of the world. They are also considered a plague in many cities- “rat’s with wings” being a common description. The “half-frame camera” emerged from Japan in the 1960s.  It allowed for a much smaller camera, plus twice as many frames on a film when the medium was very expensive.This was shot on a green Canon Demi.  It’s in fairly rough cosmetic condition and has to be “taped up” (undone in this case) to prevent light-leaks, but the built-in selenium cell meter is still accurate, the lens clean and sharp, the iris snappy, and the shutter bang-on.  In general,  it’s a joy to use…  Canon Demi
