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

That's a neat statue - and neat placement for it. Bet at first glance those who notice him think he is a real man sitting on the ledge. He must do what he was designed to do, drawing attention and possible new business to the camera store.

It looks like they hire someone to sit up there just to pose. But it is just a statue.
Good shot!

Have a nice vacation.
