a symphony of sparrows

Happy Bokeh Wednesday!!

one of the famed "Birdmen of Notre Dame". There is a group of older men who hang out all day on the Notre Dame plaza and feed the birds, sometimes holding food in their hands for the birds while striking profoundly confident french poses. I thought it looked like he was in the midst of conducting a symphony.

 

And yes, it was a bright overcast day. Sadly the sky is blown out, but I still thought this was a fun image. In the larger version you can see the crumbs from the food in his hand tumbling to the ground (looks like specks along the length of the lightpost).
