I find myself mesmerized by the process as each step is carefully, yet quickly, completed. Noticing the bare hands, I wonder how many burns occur during a typical work week. I know I would need a first aid kit within close proximity.

People of Paris #12 features Pigeon Man, also known as the Pigeon Whisperer. It appears as though the gentleman is not thrilled with his role in life and may be thinking that this is one crappy job.

Located in the Notre Dame Cathedral square,  there is some history behind this practice. The original Pigeon Man of Notre Dame, Pierre Pradeau came almost every day after his retirement to feed the birds, until he passed away on December 13th, 2009.
