day 100: droplets on yellow fruit
Every day for 100 days I have taken pictures. With this I still haven’t reached a third of my planned year. I had lots of fun so far, but slowly I can also understand why people abandon these kind of projects after a while. If you think about it, the motivation for such creative things often goes out of the window if you feel that your forced to do them. Setting yourself goals like doing this kind of thing every day for a year, well, there are bound to be days when you feel a bit rough or just want to stay at home doing nothing. The last few days I’ve felt that pressure.
These days I was generally feeling a bit like I have a cold and I was exhausted from driving for hours on end through random towns and villages near Berlin on Thursday. Today I had the same ordeal, just this time driving on the Autobahn. Again I got up way too early and then drove around Berlin for about 4 hours. While I was overtaking a lorry on the left, someone apparently found that I wasn’t fast enough and overtook the lorry on the right, where there isn’t even a lane. People are utterly crazy. Luckily nothing happened, but I guess some people do feel the urge to die young.
The picture is a macro of a star fruit or also carambola. They look pretty if you cut them open, but I found that the droplets made this picture of the outside interesting too. From the taste they’re not so interesting and they’re quite sour too. I found them nice with some sugar though.
