Travel Photo of the Day (July 29)

During our 2012 trip to Berlin we enjoyed watching this man torment other tourists. Most of the tourists didn't get mad. Some did, which was even funnier. Photo taken in Berlin, Germany.

  1. Definitely catching some of the local color!

  2. Oh lord, is that a clown/mime? 2nd circle of hell.

    Nice picture, TBM. This man looks like an interesting character 🙂

    Wish more people realised .. “Humor is contagious… Laughter is infectious… Both are good for your health.”

  5. Hmm, I like the color red! He might bug me, I don’t know. Depending on my mood I might get a big kick out of him. I am sorta shy so I don’t know.. 🙂 I would laugh if he tormented CH.. 😀

    Must admit, I loathe things like this. I don’t like the living statues one bit either, and every city seems full of them.

    I have to be in the right state of mind for something like this. I enjoy seeing them engage someone else but I am not always thrilled to be the center of attention. And the hubby—oh my—-he would give him a look that would make him run away. While he is funny and known far and wide for his Chrisisms he is really an introvert and would hate being the recipient of unwanted attention.

      yeah I wouldn’t want to be the source of entertainment. I am extremely jumpy and tend to over react much to the amusement of others.

        I like to be on the sidelines myself. Last summer I got pulled up on “the stage” at the Renaissance Festival and had to pretend sword fight complete with wearing a nasty looking pirate hair wig—all I was worried about was lice. 🙂 But I pulled it off and got the most tips….

      • TBM says:

        I would have been worried about lice as well. I’m not big into wearing other people’s clothes and not sure I’ve ever worn a community wig. Good for you! And nicely done with the tips.

      • Beth Ann says:

        I whispered to the pirate when he gave it to me that I was worried about that and he broke character and whispered back that they spray all the wigs and clothing religiously. It was kind of funny that he totally got me and broke character to reassure me. 🙂

      • TBM says:

        You mean there are nice pirates!

  8. Novroz says:

    Is he a street performer?

  9. Nice photo! I’m smiling here thinking of all the fun I would have if I got pulled into his act:-)

  10. Fergiemoto says:

    What an interesting character! He does look a bit mischievous.

  11. i loved Berlin-the east more than the west but there was just something about it that touched me.
