i looked at him. there was so much i wanted to ask him, so much i wanted to say; but somehow i knew there wasn’t time and even if there was, that it was all, somehow, beside the point.

‘are you happy here?’ i said at last.
he considered this for a moment. ‘not particularly,’ he said.
‘but you’re not very happy where you are, either.’
st basil’s, in moscow, chartes. salisbury and amiens. he glanced at his watch.
‘i hope you’ll excuse me,’ he said, ‘but i’m late for an appointment.’

he turned from me and walked away. i watched his back receding down the long, gleaming hall.

these pictures are basically the same, only the dof is different.
i love playing with depth of field. i love my f1.8 lenses very much.

last sunday most shops in hannover, for reasons unknown to me, decided to open.
it was in one of them that i found a pink pig, lonely amongst the traditional bears. he was the last one of his species in the shop, some stitches starting to undo, and the price tag marked in red: REDUCED, from 7 euros to 3,50. rather humiliating for such a cute swine.

i had no doubts we had to be friends.
and so Percival was born. Perci, to his pals.

here he is, sitting at Jack The Ripper’s, advertising for SCUM, my favorite night spot at the lower saxony (yep, they’ve reopened):

at home, after a shower and some new stitching, telling me that he could work the “intelectual blogger” part.


soon the last flowers on the balcony will die and i will be wandering around the flat on my ugly old socks. but the cold is a great excuse to get myself around some bonne mamam jam and switch on my little lamps earlier. :)
