Venice and its Pigeons

(...) The birds are part of the spirit of place. They are the grey stone come alive and rendered soft to the touch.
Venice - Peter Ackroyd

Have I gone mad  voluntarily taking pictures of pigeons from below?
No: I only dared because they were ART, more precisely the work of Maurizio Cattelan.
Admittedly, without risk of being the target of these mischievous birds, I appreciated their ubiquitous presence at the Biennale' s Italian Pavilion.
