The pigeons nest in the crevices between floors of the Guggenheim. Every so often they fly out. So you need to stand and wait, and wait…

After about an hour, people wonder what you’re waiting for. The guards keep an eye on you. Remember, your camera is aimed up at the spot you think the pigeons will exit from all this time. Very suspicious. Then there’s a big whoosh, and the pigeons zoom out and you take as many shots as you can before you don’t have the museum in the shot any longer…

But then, some months later, somebody sees the image and says, Good snap.

I've been photographing New York, mostly in black and white, for the last 35 years. In other words, I began in the age of Tri-x and D-76 and eventually moved into the world of pigment ink. Enjoy your stay - Dave
