Green Parrot

A Favourite Print at My Talks

Start Image

Cheeky Parrot

My iPhone, is becoming my everyday camera. It's always in my bag. This was an image that I couldn't have taken without my iPhone as the lens just fitted in the square of the cage.

A walk in the local park, to see the flowers, birds and have a stroll. This little guy was chatting to me.

It's a very messy background with lots of distractions and highlights. I loved the parrot portrait and the bright colours. I knew I wanted it to me more than just a memory image.
