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...
Where did all the time go?
The annual Offenbach Strassenfest is accompanied by the German Garrison of the 501st Legion of Star Wars troopers. All the costumes were really impressive and correct down to the finest detail. Due to my son being petrified of the sand people (that noise they make still scares me too) and having to prepare for his birthday party, I couldn't spend as long as I'd hoped to take photos of all the troopers. Hopefully, I can get more next time!
I got a watch for my birthday present and because my daily update photos have been conspicuously absent I wanted to commemorate it with a photo before it gets any dings or scratches. I had forgotten how complicated it is to get photos of shiny things without too many bad reflections!
Every year thousands of cranes make a massive journey from the cold northern lands of Siberia and Canada to Izumi, Kagoshima prefecture, Japan to stay for the winter before heading back again in spring. There were about 30 birds that have stayed behind this year. Cranes are said to mate with one partner for life so I wonder if any of them were there just to be with an injured loved one.
