UNITED BUDDY BEARS is an idea on its tour around the word...
120 Buddy Bears were created in Berlin/Germany, and are standing peacefully hand in hand to represent 120 United Nations member states...
an exhibition under the motto WE HAVE TO GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER BETTER it makes us understand one another better, trust each other more and live together more peacefully...
UNITED BUDDY BEARS raised more than 1 m euros for charity organizations so far...
after Berlin, Kitzbühel and Hongkong, they are in Istanbul now..

funny to see this little girl ( maybe a new TE member ) shooting the bears.

Well done shot! it is nice to see your photos on TE again! I like the composition and the dramatic curve in the shot. The little girls adds something specialto it!

Beautiful composition Fusun. I love how you use b&w to bring out the contrast. Thanks for sharing.

The combination of the curve and the position of the photographer make a good composition for this picture. Nice job.

This is very well composed Fusun. It seems as if all those buddy bears/nations were paying hommage to the child. Much wiser than if it was the other way around. Strong and symbolic image. I guess it is the way how I personnally interpret it.
The B&W choice works perfectly with the wet darker pavement. The way you placed this curve in diagonal has produced a very aesthetic image IMO.

Hi Fusun, Happy New Year!
Delighted to see a picture of you again!
The composition with the half circle, and the girl in it, taking a picture, is so nice. The girl makes this one, of course.
The wet dark streets give a nice reflexion in the upper part.

Great composition. The girl seems to be so little in front of these bears! The b&w is perfect.
"Chapeau bas !"

Thank you Fusun! I hasd never heard of this tour. i knew one with cows, but not with bears... great photo with this little girl taking a photo?? a future TE member maybe?
happy new year to you and your family

well, fusun, another great photo on your behalf. very well composed and technically flawless. the small boy/girl brings balance to the setting and the arc of buddy bears offsets the child perfectly. the odd shaped frame is also great. thanx 4 sharing!

Merhaba Fusun,Oldukca iyi bir calışma,gurultunun sessizligini yaklamışsın diyorum..Tebrikler ve mutlu seneler

Long ago since the last time I saw one of your photos. I´m glad to meet you again and as I see in a good shape photographicly speaking. Talking about shapes, you´ve picked up a nice one of this bears and the contrast with the little ¿girl? is quite nice, the fact that she´s alone in front of them gives the compo a better effect. I saw this bears at Berlin long ago and I hope they visited us here in Madrid someday. Saludos desde Madrid, Fusun y felíz año nuevo.

Hi Fusun, happy new year! I like this wonderfully curved b&w composition very much. The relation between the buddybears and the child works miraculous. I like the way puddles with their reflections too. What otherwise would be a bland space strengthens the compo in a fine way. Great job.
avigur_11 (22107) 2005-01-07 6:49
This is the best photo that I have seen on TE today, and I liek so much the little photographer in the middle and the curve line of the bears.
manny (21833) 2005-01-08 12:01
Hi Fusun...here you are again with your strong BW composition. You aleays show something new about your photos. hEre, it is the woman that I almost failed to notice.
Great shot....really good patterns and graphism.

Nice image. Very good composition, the little girl are very well placed . B&W works very well too. Well seen and good work.
Midnight_sun (1941) 2005-01-15 13:44
Surreal, i like the playful mood this has, with what looks like a child caught in a dream. good compo etc. well done.
SoupDragon (652) 2005-01-23 5:46
Thought that this was taken from a roof looking down, but these bears must be huge!
The composition sings at you, this is a classic picture.
Marcie (345) 2005-01-24 13:00
I found it a bit humorous, that the peacful buddy bears make a little kid cry, but for the message "we need to know each other better" perfectly fits. Good compo, angle, theeee.

bugün diğer gönderdiğini görünce hatırlıyorum ben bunu gibi geldi ve buraya ulaştım.
buradaki yay ve yayın içinde kalan çocuk hoş bir kompozisyon oluşturuyorlar,güzel bir bakış açısı yakalamışsın.

Wow, I didn't know this exhibition was also in Turkey! I saw the bears in Berlin recently and had fun photographing them. I like the way you have captured them, in this curving composition. I think it was an interesting idea to do such a colorful subject in b&w. In a way I think the monotone contributes to the unity of the photo, and helps the girl to be more noticeable.
Thanks for sharing!
