The Pose

I am sure to get this higher position for a snapshot with this long weapon would result a perfect shot for a bird eye view or even a lot more.This statue located in Neumarkt area not too far from the melted ice cream sculpture and it is on top of an old Camera shop where you can find some oldest camera on their display.I don't think I would like to carry this BIG weapon as I'm a practice person.But somehow,I realized that this statue is very clean,usually such a statue will stand there for the customer attraction only and being forgotten,specially in this higher position.
Well,with this camera man statue,I would like to say that I will continue make a snapshot with my little pal "Sony" but it would be not in Cologne until the second Monday of September as We are off for our holiday.

Thank you very much,sweet people out there for stopping by and give your nice comment so far.I am delighted to know that you are also enjoy the way I see my city through my camera.

Have a nice weekend to you all...until then.......

PS: in case you miss Cologne,you can still see through April's eyes

Still for tourist

This shuttle train is on the way to the chocolate museum and sport museum.You can find it always in front of Roemisch Germanisches Museum right next to the Dom (The Cathedral) or sometimes right in front of the Dom platform and the yellow car is the taxi.FYI,these both museums are next door to each other,so don't get panic when you lost control in chocolate museum as you only need less than 3 minutes walk to the sport museum to get your shape back ;o) I will show you next time the chocolate museum.

I think my photo today is more attract to the tourist and not the city daily photo community but hey,who knows one day you will be come tourist in Cologne.So,I decided to choose this photo just to show a piece of plenty choices of souvenir you can find in Cologne beside the postcard. I know,perhaps this is absolutely not your taste of souvenir (not mine either) but as I said you have plenty of choices in Cologne.This is still in Hohe Strasse right next to The DOM (Cathedral) that I've posted while ago.

At Schildergasse

Here is another street musician but this one,his market is only for kids.As you can see,this cute girl was his customer but his idea is to make interactive with his customer instead of only drop a coin and walk away.The song he plays attracted the adult as well caused it reminds and brings back again to their childhood or to their own kids who already fly out from the nets (adults) and of course for the grandparents of their grandchildren who may have not seen for quite some time.
