Here is my offering for Alastair’s Photo Fiction this week, inspired by the photo below. Why not take part? And why not visit his photography and writing blog to take a look at his other photos…?
– The Pigeon Fancier –
“Hey, George! Psst! Are you in there?”
“Don’t be silly, Jim. He ain’t in there! Why would he be in there?”
“Look, Sally’s convinced that’s where she saw him last, before they put the air brick back. Why d’you think she’s been standing here like a lovelorn loon, billing and cooing like it’s going out of fashion?”
“Boys! Shush! I can hear him! He’s definitely in there…”
“Come on, Sally love, you know you’re wasting your time. He’s done a runner, same as always…”
“No he hasn’t! You always want to talk him down – listen!”
“Come on, Jim, let’s leave her to it. She won’t listen – stupid girl!”
“Salleeeeee, Salleeeee, pride of our alley, you’re more than the whole world toooo me…”
“See! I told you boys! He’s singing to me! George! George! Here I am!”
“Jim – it’s that film on TV again, she’s got it all wrong, poor love.”
“Bless her. Let’s leave her to it, like you said. The blighter doesn’t deserve her…”
Here’s a bit of background, for those of you that don’t know the film Sally in Our Alley, or the song by Gracie Fields.
