day 72: cracks and ripples

I have noticed this broken window already months ago, but only now I managed to take an interesting enough picture of it. The window is part of the shop front of what used to be a pharmacy if I’m not mistaken and the broken part actually has a different colour from the rest of the window. This is not quite visible in this night shot, because of the reflection of the bar across from the shop front, but I assume it’s what gives it this special glow too.

I took the picture on the way to the big grocery store that is not too far from here. The store is massive and I never quite find everything I’m looking for just because it’s so big. I easily become impatient in such big grocery markets and give up. The last time I was in this store with Ezequiel I actually got very grumpy. This was clearly my fault since I had the stupid idea to go there before having any breakfast. When I’m hungry I’m quite the opposite of patient. And I’m not a patient person in the first place.

Apart from my visit to the grocery store I didn’t do much of consequence yesterday. I just relaxed watching some Star Trek, eating some nice food and enjoying a quiet Saturday.

  1. Beautiful photo – really inspiring. I’m going to search more of your blog…I think I’ve already stumbled on a treasure after reading this post. Thanks for sharing (and yes! I also get grumpy when hungry! lol).

  3. Your patience in waiting for just the right angle paid off very well. Wondering how it managed to not shatter and crumble after all this time.

  6. I can never do anything on an empty stomach…trouble for sure. This is an interesting photo with its patterns of light and texture. We all need a bit of doing nothing of consequence in order to reboot the creativity.
