le jeux d'ombre est magnifique et la comparaison avec "If I were a rich man" est très bonne

The shadow play is beautiful and the comparison with "If I were a rich man" is very good

I really, really, REALLY, like that photo. (And the lens is a nice one too. How much does it cost in your area?)

My dream? To be able to spend all my autumns in Boston/New England, winters in southern Europe, springs in Asia and summers in South America. :)

Wow, wow, wow! If we had a photo contest among CDPBloggers, this shot would surely win my vote. This is perfection. Please tell us more about this shot. It deserves to be widely seen, and you to be congratulated "to the roof!"

PS, hey, did you use that lens to get this shot, or are you wishing to have that lens. It is my fave lens, but the 2.8 L IS version of it is out, and I would buy that one instead of the 4.

My dream is to be able to capture a fantastic image like this one . . . wow.

This brings to mind the musical, as you mentioned, but also the artist Marc Chagall. It is a pleasure to see this image today.

My dream? Lately I've been dreaming of new sprouts coming up out of the ground. Spring is coming.

Is the figure real, or a statue? Great shot.

Extremely much too much! (about 1500$)
> are you wishing to have that lens
YES, it is my dream!
> 2.8 L is really better than 4! More light.

It is a statue of a young legendary boy in the middle of the Old Town. He was a rafts man (Torun is located on the Vistula river - the biggest one in Poland). This man was playing on his violin and took off a frog plague from the town. Torun inhabitants built him this memorial as a second reward. The very first one was a beautiful mayor's daughter... .

So you have a guide around :-)

NO PROBLEM. Just visit Torun - it is very easy in my town ;-)

That's a brilliant photo!

Currently my dream is to finish my PhD. Somehow I suspect only I have the key to that though!

Yes...this is the famous raftsman statue...in other words it is a very similar story to the famed Piped Piper of Hamelyn. It's a great attraction especially in summer...when the frogs spurt water and the kids splash each other!
