Weekly Photo Challenge – Free Spirit

Free spirit

The brief for this week’s photo challenge was “free spirit” , they say if you have to explain a photograph it’s not doing a good job but….

I chosen this image because it shows cages for sale at the Sunday bird market on the Île de la Cité in Paris. Here you will find a mixture of bird sellers, buyers, suppliers of feed, cages and other impedimenta along with curious tourists. My photograph represents everything that I feel is bad about keeping exotic birds or any other animal in a cage. Most of these tiny creatures will spend their days imprisoned in small cages destined only to see the panorama beyond through chrome plated bars.
