Hello Pavle,
The pigeons enjoy their bath and to drink fresh water. It's a nice capture of the birds and the splashing water of the fountain. It's a very sharp and well exposed photo.
Best regards,
Gert

Default To jean113: statue

Thank you Jean,
There is a story behind that statue which I didn't bother to describe in the note. It was made in 1907 by a nationally famous sculptor and placed in a different place in this area. In 2007 it was vandalized and the male figure beheaded and the head was never found. It was taken down and another statue placed there. In 2018 it was restored with a new head based on old photos. Only this year it was placed here in a new location. I only found this out after I had been there.
Best regards,
Gert
