Interesting photo...I love how folks sit a schmooze on these lovely benches that you, VP and others photograph!

Ampelmännchen has got to be one of the cutest symbols of Berlin. I love that shop. I'm surprised I didn't buy everything in it!

Agree with Ciel, the Ampelmännchen are really a nice symbol of Berlin. We love this city, it's a great place to visit (and possibly to live).
I had never seen "benches" illustrated with the männchen though, that is quite a find!
"Stealing breakfast" in the earlier post is also a winner!
God bless you!

Cute! We have an Ampelman light. Someone gave it to us as a gift when we first left Berlin. However, they did not realize the plugs/volts are different in N America, so we haven't used it. Hopefully in another three years we'll be back!
Cute shot for today. :)

I recently saw a story on the news about these pedestrian light symbols.
