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!
Was out for a walk with my son when I noticed people aggregating near the town hall concentrating on their mobile phones. I was a bit wary at first as it wasn't clear what they were all up to. It turned out to be people playing Pokémon. I had a quick chat with Leticia, but my son was busy running around like mad full of ice cream energy so didn't get to understand everything about the game. However it's certainly weird to see so many adults all playing the same thing but not necessarily interacting with each other.
A perfect sunset! This photo is straight out of the camera with no effects. I was grateful Nina agreed to let me take her photo just at the right moment!
I've been meaning to do a 100 Strangers project for some time to motivate me more in approaching people on the street. I have taken photos of random people in the last year or two so might back date it, but until then I think this makes for a nice official first photo.
I was particularly drawn to Akari's fashion sense and especially her hat. Japanese people have a special way of being uniformly fashionable and unique at the same time, often by combining Western brands and items in a distinctly Japanese way.
