Along Paris streets...
Summer, 2014
Jouseph, aka pigeon man, is a favorite fixture at the Pompidou Center. He regularly brings croissants (bread crumbs are not good enough) and water for his wards. My neighborhood organization calls him a menace to public health and has made all kinds of efforts to keep him away. He just keeps getting arrested, fined and returns to the car where he lives on a nearby street. Of course, he can't pay. He can single out a sick or disabled bird among hundreds. He picks it up, determines what is wrong and may take it to the Paris Pigeon Protection society, or whatever it is called.
