What color are a pigeons eyes? On a given day you'll see hundreds of pigeons, but have you ever taken a second to look at the color of their eyes?
When I was a Sophomore, I had this project in my creative writing class: I had to write a paper about something not interesting and make it interesting. At that time, I came to the conclusion that of all things, pigeons were most extraordinarily boring, so I took some time to find something interesting about them. It turns out that not only are pigeons interesting, they're absolutely incredible. My fascination developed, and naturally I made an infographic that got absolutely carried away.
The project is a bit dated in it's design, but it still remains one of my favorite projects, not because I love pigeons (which I do) but because I learned an important lesson that would become a cardinal rule for me: If you take a second, everything in life can be incredibly fascinating.
So take it all a bit slower, and the world will open up from every direction.
Oh and for the record, pigeons have brilliantly orange eyes.
