A new man is in town. Since today Boomer and I are in Hamburg for a few days. A big adventure. So many people, cars and travelling with underground trains. Stairs. escalators, lifts. A new world for a dog from the moors and lakes of our home. But so far he is doing pretty good and is obviously enjoying the new area. So watch out, dogs of Hamburg. A new man is in town.
Today I was searching through my files and stumbled over one of my all time favorites. I captured the image in Frankfurt years ago, when I was into street photography and urban landscapes. Today I read about the artist Steve Donwood, who did all the album artwork for the band Radiohead. He said that computers are alienating because they put a sheet of glass between you and whatever is happening. Finally he said: “You never really get to touch anything that you’re doing unless you print it out”. That’s what I did with the image above. And it feels awesome.
See you on Thursday next week. Happy days. Reinhold
