Silent Nests, a photographic series by Vicki Topaz, documents the now disappearing centuries-old French pigeon houses (pigeonniers or colombiers in French). Discovered by Vicki while traveling across northwestern France in 2002, she was intrigued enough to return to France several times over the course of four years to find and document these buildings with her Diana camera. Read more about this fascinating corner of architectural history in Vicki's essay (and see more of her beautiful series) here. Via lens culture.
