Hoche, le soleil et les pigeons

Statue Hoche Versailles
The evening sun and General Hoche with his usual pigeons... Read about the Versailles born general here and see the statue in its environment here.

Le général, c'est par ici et la place Hoche, c'est par là.

Great perch for the birds, though I doubt the general agrees!

Lovin that first shot,...although he doesn't look too pleased with the pigeons in the second...but who could blame him...

Poor statue has too many unwelcome visitors!

Talk about an up and down career!

Sharon Anck said...

The General is a handsome fellow isn't he?

Dave said...

Good timing on the first shot with the sun shining through his legs.

Superb photos, Ciel. The first one is stunning!

Halcyon said...

At least Hoche has a bit of company there, even if it's not the kind of company I personally like!

Nasty, ugly pigeons: they are everywhere...

Jacob said...

Pigeons are no respecter of persons. Neither rank of office nor fatuous celebrity moves them in the least. Statuesque generals must become adjusted to being pooped upon!

Like your silhouette shot of General Hoche. He seems to be able to charm the bird out of the air.

Love the silhouette of the General.

They really don't care who they shit on, do they? I love the silhouette, it's awesome.
