Nothings new...design ideas

When I did the decoration on my plate, I couldn't resist a pigeon. Years ago my Granny lived just along the road from the Royal  Pigeon racing owners club....to be honest at the time I didn't realise quite what it was about but I liked the house and sign. When I come up with an idea ,for a second I might think it's new but in reality someone has probably created something similar, we just have different styles. I had been looking through my old sketch books for inspiration and had found this picture of Cleeve Hill ,4th July 1987 !  ...birds and roof tops.
 
Everyday we are influenced by all the images around us so ....nothing is new....well it was once!
