Lucky me! Seriously!
A few days ago I couldn’t fall asleep. Usually I go to bed rather late, I’m a night owl. It was impossible to get some rest that night. I had a crisis at 7 am, no sleep though. I had no other choice than just be awake until the next evening. With that amount of time what can you do? I went to the city center to find all fat pigeons. And I think I managed to find most if not all of them.
For a while I’ve been thinking it was a dream or a mirage. But my camera says it’s true. To prove it to you I’ll show you the photos.
Let’s count the fat pigeons. Jeez, I need to demonstrate the mathematical skills, which are limited (to say the least).
So… Shall we start?
For now we have 8 from 2 photos from previous post.
Next four birds as a traffic barriers. (8+4=12)
Lonely guard (12+1=13 - that was easy!)
Those saved my time. 1o sculptures in one place! (13+10= 23) I found them when I came back from the post office with Christmas cards.
I almost missed that triangle! (23+3= 26 seems like a half already caught)
Aww, a pink one! Cutie! While I am amazed of their diversity in my sister’s head there are totally different thoughts… Fortunately for me I can read her mind: “Hamburgers and pigeons… Pigeons and hamburgers… Coincidence? I don’t think so… ” (26+3=29)
Another lonely guard. Good pigeon, good boy. Nobody will steal my car now. (29+1=30)
Gang of 6 cuties (30+6=36)
“Don’t panic bro, just blend in the crowd and we all gonna be fine” (36+2=38)
Clever beasts! (42+2=44)
Who will blink first? Blinks fight! (44+2=46)
Yeah, it’s about that lonely brave knight but when you’ll see IT, you gonna smile… (46+1=47)
Gutter cleaners. (47+2=49)
It becomes very popular here in Tallinn: your own parking pigeon. New trend, real talk. (49+1=50 magic number!)
Sweet couple (50+2=52)
Sweeter couple (52+2=54) Oh, and worth to notice: next to them you can find a bench dedicated to Chopin!
(54+4=58) They are located next to the Freedom Square
The last couple I could find. (58+2=60 and dammit, “over 50″ it’s not 60 or more! I have wrong information.. but still had fun looking for them)
But hey, why was I so lucky? Oh, the day was perfect for a walk: excellent visibility, sun shining like it was spring, not winter, cup of hot coffee in my hands and the pigeons everywhere!
And a small bonus in the end of the day: a snow! Ah, it made me really happy! First snow this year! Now I’m in the Christmas mood. The landscape has changed dramatically. It seems like my walk was the last glimpse of autumn. I made it just in time.
One more thing… The artist himself with his art:
I find this task as unfinished… Wait for me, pigeons!
