Technically we are strangers but we met and chatted together over a year ago. I took a photo on my film camera and said I would hand him a copy next time we met. However, I didn't bump into him again until now and have no idea where the photo went. I was carrying my Canon so managed to get a second digital photo. He plays guitar around Frankfurt and is one of the nicest people with a very relaxed tropical island kind of accent when he isn't singing some acoustic classic rock music on the street. A lot has happened for each of us since the last time we chatted and I was grateful to have met him again. So if you see him, say hello and make a request!
I don't know where all my time has gone lately. I'm pretty sure there are the same number of hours in a day but I've no idea where they all went. I will try to get back on track as soon possible but constant bad weather has been a big reason my camera has been stuck in my bag for most of the last month.
You wouldn't believe it were possible to miss the sight, sound and smell of workmen retaring the road but an unfortunate woman put a high heel right in it and then went off stickily down the road...
I twisted my back the other day and have been completely out of action for almost a week now. The first few days I could barely crawl around to get to the bathroom but I'm slowly getting back on my feet and getting tired of starting at the ceiling.
I had been waiting for these flowers to blossom in a vase at home for ages and almost forgot to get a photo of them before they had withered. Luckily having a tripod meant I didn't have to hold the camera for long to get a nice photo.
I took photos for a Chinese restaurant today. You wouldn't believe how hard they work every day. It made me feel grateful to only work 9 to 5! But I'm sure fortune favours those who work for it.
This lady had really cool skills in a diabolo style instrument. She held two poles with a cord between that had a spinning top on it that made a dining noise. She span it round while spinning herself on the spot in a dance as attached to the top was also a yellow dragon that looked 3 or 4 metres long that flew around her in circles!
Seeing this empty wheelchair made me wonder if this 4th blood moon every six months was a sign after all. I'm always intrigued when I see wheel chairs or disability scooters parked outside of shops too. Did they really need them? Isn't carrying shopping even more difficult than just walking? Incidentally, I saw a man cycling on a racing bike as fast as the cars behind him. Normally nothing to get excited about... Except he had just one leg!! His left leg was just a metal prosthetic way up to his hip so wasn't doing much more than spinning round for show.
Don't get me wrong, I'm no fan of Warsteiner as it is a slightly bitter cheap tasting pils but they do serve it on Lufthansa flights which makes the flight back into Frankfurt slightly more bareable.
I have always been awful at naming plants. Shameful, considering I studied botany as part of my biology degree. Whatever it is, it caught my eye.
