Rothenburg, corner of Obere Schmiedgasse and Hafengasse on the main Marketplatz, a Teddy-bear sit on the window and puffing bubbles… every few minutes an automatic-switch puff-out a nice thread of bubbles. What a fun sight, seeing this as contrast to the old town architecture's, while it was raining. Taken under my umbrella.
Location on the square: 49.3768, 10.1794

Hi Ike !!
Nice story and nice photo taken on a rainy day.
I also like the sign which is attached on the corner.
Soft colours and sharp details.
Have a nice week end.

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Une histoire originale et intéressante pour une prise de vue sous parapluie, ce qui ne doit pas être facile (tenir d'une main l'appareil photo et de l'autre le manche du parapluie).
Vue originale et bien présentée.

A charming capture featuring this cute teddy bear. Perfectly framed using the lamp and the sign as anchor points. Good rendering of the textural detail in the walls despite the poor light.

A nice advertisement for these teddy bear shop.
You can see that a rain day also can make good picture.
A splendid picture, with a lovely architecture picture too.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Ooh Ike so cute teddy bear on that balcony, nice picture showing that building facade, interesting architectural details, thanks, have a nice day

The teddy bear in the window is an eye catcher. The light and the sign are helping to frame the building. The point of view is shwing the détails and colors of the wall. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

your picture is great. I like the way you composed it including a part of the side wall, you've used perspectives and framing skillfully, created a fine sense of balance and rendered all the details significant and attractive. Sharpness and lighting have been managed effectively and the original and funny title leads us to examine the frame thorougly and with a smile of anticipation. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

The same as you I love these old steam locomotives very much. You can see some more on my WEB:
I like your photo, nice detail of clean house façade taken from excellent low angle viewpoint.
The inclusion of street light and the shop sign is very good.
Also the overall arrangement with the full shop name is excellent. Well done.
Wish you a nice Sunday.

Good morning Ike,
An amusing and very nice capture. I would say that the rainy weather was no problem here. It is great that you actually have mangaged to capture the rainy day mood. Your perspective a little from the side is perfect. The problem though I have experienced myself taking photos like this is that it often impossible to keep all window in their entirety within the frame. I would imagine that you had this problem here. Your excellent cropping suggests that. TFS and have a nice Sunday!

Hi Ike, So you visited also Rothenburg, imho the most beautiful town in Germany, with atmosphere similar to the Alsace towns. well observed this Teddy puffing bubbles. I liked the shop with Christmas decoration, it was fun to see them in summer.
Have a nice week

Well spotted the little teddy bear being used to advertise the shop which is situated in this old German architecture. You done a really fine job here Ike as its not easy taking a shot from this point of view in the rain from below an umbrella. Nice one.
nikkitta (8951) 2013-09-30 13:42
Why n most of people get bad humored with rain and decided the day was over for photos, you continued and found good and here funny subjects, Ike
Like the cropped capture with lamp and hanging...not know the name, at the right
Well done and better taken...under the umbrella

This is probably the funniest advertisement means I ever saw!
Quite an eye-catcher indeed especially when it's blowing bubbles!
Let's hope nobody will throw balls at it as youngsters do in funfairs to win cheap stuff!
delpeoples (48592) 2013-10-01 18:10
Your title intrigued me and the photo made me laugh. A teddy bear blowing bubbles is not something you see every day. Good spotting? I also like the architecture and the angle at which you took the photo, including the old German writing on the bottom left hand corner.
Nice work, thanks for sharing
mcmtanyel (5219) 2013-10-02 12:51
It is a humorous photo, indeed. Nice detail shown. What would make this superlative would be catching the bears in the act of blowing bubbles.
Royaldevon (21415) 2013-10-04 1:30
Your title intrigued me!
The sight would certainly have cheered you up on a rainy day!
Despite the weather, your shot is amazingly clear and detailed, though there is a hint of rain on the well-placed lamp!
Have a great day,

You're capturing well this house by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see Teddy-bear house with clean design and many windows. It's a good gentle colors for outer wall and window frame. And, blue color in front of Teddy bear draws out a good impact in this image.
jmdias (48341) 2013-11-16 5:00
excellent view and a little treasure waiting for a camera. I liked the image, it give us a general information about the place. anyway I would prefer a crop using more the window and maybe the letters below.
