Photographer's Note

The little Mermaid sitting at Langelinie in Copenhagen, is one of Denmark's biggest tourist attractions. The sculpture was put up in 1913, and has since then been the symbol of Denmark. Like the Eiffel tower in Paris and the statue of liberty in New York both have been very important for the two cities, so has the Little Mermaid been important for Copenhagen! I thought that I will never have a good shot of the Little Mermaid by itself. There so many tourist swarming all over it. I waited and I got rewarded with some good shots. But it took me some fast running to catch up with the tour group.
It is easy to see that The Little Mermaid is an important lady! More than on million people visit the mermaid every year. Thousands of post cards and, t-shirts and other souvenirs are sold to tourists. "She is so small", says most people seeing The Little mermaid for the first time. And she is. Only 1.25 meter (approx 4 feet) high, she is very small, sitting on her rock and looking at the water at Langelinie. Like a real mermaid, she is half human half fish. With naked breasts and fish tail, she is in her true element when the waves hits her rock. Maybe she is dreaming about leaving the big sea to find her Prince and an immortal soul.
