I happened to walk by the famous Spanish riding school that resides in a magnificient building in central Vienna. But when I looked at it I was surprised, I thought they used horses!
The behaviour of the pigeons are also funny, the where sitting like this on the wall across the street. When I halted for a moment to look at something they took that as an invitation and moved over to my side in a matter of seconds.
Considering the effort we have today to keep pigeons of our building, even wrapping fantastic architecture in nets so that noone can see it, it is a contradiction of human behaviour that we at the same time feed this flying rats to an extent that has made them totaly used to man.

A great shot and well composed with the different levels and the building title. I really like the water (?.. i hope ;) runs in the concrete... they add a really interesting element to the picture.
