A group of Japanese dancers with taiko drum performing various regional Bon odori festival dances in the middle of Frankfurt today. The drum beat and atmosphere took me back!
There was loud music playing somewhere near my place this evening so went to have a look what was going on. A crew of Harley Davidson bikes, black Benz's and entourage of muscle men were making a music video. They had two camera men, a drone, a crowd of onlookers and some perplexed residents who were not able to get past the spectacle for 20 minutes or so. They must be pretty famous and important as the police came... Then went with a smile. Although they were against people taking photo or video I got this shot during a quiet moment. If only I knew who they were...
It's been a while since I got my macro lens out. A dark rainy day and nothing much to do was a perfect recipe for testing out bouncing on camera flash off a white umbrella (regular one, not photographic).
After some initial confusion, I found out that this group are from a physio school just a short distance away: https://www.facebook.com/physiotherapieschulefriedrichsheim/
I've never seen a graffiti artist at work and never expected they would do it in broad day light. Glad to be allowed to take a few photos of them as who knows when I will meet another.
I spotted a heavily laden bicycle by the river before I noticed Daniela sat behind it eating breakfast before heading off to Frankfurt as part of her journey to cycle to the sea in the North of Germany which she had set aside a month to do. It made me feel like I need to challenge myself more too!
