Riley and his crew communicated with the pigeons with whistles and bag-waving from top of the flight deck of a decommissioned Navy ship, thousands of pigeons swooped through the darkening skies in a jaw-dropping display of beauty! They call this art show “Fly by Night”

 “It is a collaborative project between me and the pigeons. It’s a performance or maybe it’s just a drawing that they are doing in the sky.” says Riley.

The effects of the lights captured by many photographers, was just stunning.
