day 92: down below: turn left for the real stairs
On a quest to find some interesting subjects to photograph and to buy some boots I went to the Ku’damm again on Friday. Somehow I find the dark these days so restrictive. My nights I spend tango dancing and that slowly eats away at my access to daylight. I have my habits, go about the things I like and suddenly it’s already dark again outside. This wouldn’t be a problem if only I had a bit of a faster lens! As a result for the outside world it must seem as if I’m living in the subway. At least there you get some bright illumination.
I also tried to take a picture of a street musician, but she didn’t like her picture being taken at all and shooed me off, before I could get the picture I wanted (or any picture for that matter). Then I decided to be a bit more open and ask before taking a picture. In front of a restaurant I saw a man watching the preparation of pasta through the kitchen window. It was a fantastic motif, but when I asked the man whether I could take his picture he said no. I guess I just have to stick to the subway and its rugged charm until I can get a faster lens. I couldn’t help feeling a bit frustrated though, although at least I found some great boots in the end.
