100 Strangers

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!

Day 233

 "eyes without speaking confess the secrets of the heart"

 "eyes without speaking confess the secrets of the heart"

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.

Day 175

Ume

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.

Day 143

Chinese cultural presentation

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!

Day 134

The blind receive sight, the l ame walk...

The blind receive sight, the lame walk...

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.
