Yes! I remember that man well. For a good ten minutes I was wondering how he got out there. My german friends had a good laugh at my expense.

Gosh, he really does make you do a double take... a "what tha?!?"...

Of course it's not a man; it's a buoy ;o)

buoy: a term for a nautical marker, oh those crazy germans.

I am coming here every day. I like vertical shot but it isn't proper for your web log, because we can't see whole frame at the same time. So if you want to show us a vertical shot; probably smaller size may be is better to look the shot without scrolling the page.

It wasn't a real man??

amazing shot!

how funny.. the first thing I thought was did he swim out there in his clothes? He doesn't look wet... very cool photo.

Great shot! Nice to see the town where I live in this photo weblog. There are lots of those "men" all around the Elbe and the lake (the Alster)...

I wanna go there.

In fact, this picture has helped me make up my mind. I am Hamburg bound.

WOW-i just happened to stumble upon your work and was taken away. AMAZING. this one is by far my favorite, im going to pretend like its a real man though. how amazing would that be if he was. it symbolizes so muchabout life, maybe thats why they put him there! THANKS FOR THE WORK, IT INSPIRES ME, someone you dont even know and probably never will-and thats an awesome thing.
