My interesting Collections (I think so anyway)
On our travels we have seen some things that seem to me to fit into collections, a little like our Pub collection. These collections I have put together even though they have been collected at different times and in different areas. I just feel that they make more sense together and if you are interested you can check the collection.
Buddy Bears of Berlin
Elephants of Sheffield
Dogs of Newcastle
The Sheffield elephants are to raise money for charity. There was an elephant trail that could be followed. We did not have time to do that but we managed to find quite a few of the elephants as we did our sightseeing tour of Sheffield.
I love these Buddy Bears they are all over Berlin and I have been photographing them since my first visit. The first of them were painted by 350 artists with the proceeds going to charity. The motto was "We have to get to know each other better, it makes us understand each other better, trust each other more and live together more peacefully'". The 140 countries of the United Nations were represented. The bear is the symbol of Berlin and can be seen on many buildings. I just like these friendly looking bears some now advertising the building they stand outside. I have my favourites and I am sure you will too.
Newcastle did the same thing as Sheffield but with dogs.
