I love this! The timing is great, and the expressions are priceless. Both on the turtle and the pedestrians! The black and white does a great job of capturing the wonderful texture of the turtle's shell.

I would be worried when I pass by this thing even when knowing it's a statue

Turtles can be vegetarian, carnivorous, or omnivorous. This happens to be a (statue of) a tortoise though, which, were it a real animal, would in fact be vegetarian .

Nice photo, I like the perspective making the statue look even larger.

Black and white really made it look real, tho what gave it away is.. well... if you saw a 300+kg turtle jumping o.O' at you, you'd react to it :P

Hehe, a great capture :)

Your reply made me think of a quote from a movie i've seen... even tho the guy was talking about 50 000eur...

"For that kind of money I'd let the whole stadium f*** me up the a**"
-"Jesus man do you know how many are in the stadium??"
"It's ok, I've got time..."

:lol:

'always a pleasure :)
