Unedited shot of a living statue on the Dam square in Amsterdam, reflected in a puddle. Taken with my Sony HX1. No editing, no magic tricks, no Photoshop :)

Help! The Amsterdam children are disappearing, lured away by the sweet, sweet music of the Pied Puddle Piper, into a wicked, wet world where they have to undergo a training in posing as living statues and then get sent off to the typical touristic attractions, to spend the rest of their days entertaining the visitors to the best city in the world, for just a few coins as their reward! I was lucky enough to capture a very typical scene, the Pied Puddle Piper finding his next victim, a young, unsuspecting boy, who just wanted to give him some change, but instead ended up joining the ever-growing ranks of those unfortunate enough to fall for the empty promises of a better future, it's a sad thing, and nobody seems to be able to stop these horrible puddle creatures, lol ;-))

Enjoy the weekend, take it easy!

My next photo exhibition at the ABC Treehouse, together with the lovely Miss Monyart, is going to start on February 5 and will go on until the end of the month, hope to see you there :)
