Photographer's Note

A typical shot of Venice would be: Plazza San Marco, Pigeons, and Tourists.

But, at that particular time I was less interested in Plazza San Marco architectural charms than in the people that were evolving on this world famous scenery. I remember there was music performed by a professional band for the most expensive bar-restaurant of the “Plazza”. Pigeons were flying around to grab the bread crumbs that people kept throwing on the ground. Children were running in circles, arms widely open like wings…and there…an elderly couple…probably loving ones…who knows…were they talking about the dramatic sinking of Venice into the sea or about the delicious time they were having feeding pigeons after having themselves enjoyed great Italian food and wine?...no idea…

But, I found them touching…just the 2 of them…in the middle of a “pigeon assembly”…in one of the most visited city of Europe…

Added to theme "your favorite song or poem in a pic" => the title comes from a Will Smith song.
