From the album Fancy Pigeons

6/21/10 - Cairo, Egypt -

At slightly before sunset pigeon fanciers climb to the top of their coops to exercise their birds and upon the birds return they are fed.

In the working class neighborhood of Imbaba, looking out onto the Nile one of the more common hobbies is raising pigeons. Some people eat them but most of the time they are groomed for their beauty and as pets.
