mole carcass

A pigeon carcass on the pinnacle of the needle-like point of the Mole Antonelliana, some 550 feet above the ground...


This uppermost roost is somehow a shrine for deceased pigeons. I like to think it has something to do with the frequency of pigeons coming to die up here. I can imagine it would be better for the pigeon to spend his or her last moments up here than roosted in a tree way down there.

Posting some long-overdue images from my 2009 trip to Turin, Italy... From the archives.
