day 128: sometimes size matters

On Saturday I went to Butlers to buy a few more mugs and bowls. I always liked these colourful mugs, but back when I had a flat in Düsseldorf I already had enough of such things, so that I had no space for them at all. Now I finally had a reason to buy them and Ezequiel likes them too. It’s an old bad habit of mine to buy too much stuff for the kitchen. It actually runs in the family, my mum also has lots of stuff for the kitchen she doesn’t really need or use. And there is definitely some more cupboard space in my kitchen for me to not restrain that habit!

On the way to Butlers I walked past the Institut Francais where I saw this boy having some fun. I looked around to locate his parents, but I think they were just standing having a chat nearby. The boy took his time to climb up there, almost fell over in the process, but in the end he managed and darted along the side of the building. If he had been any bigger, he wouldn’t have fit on there.

  7. I’m mesmerized by this photograph because my eyes can not stand still, the fallen chalk board, the cold street-scape juxtaposed with the nice warm light of the gallery interior, the reflection of xmas lights in trees and the building across the street. Is that a Malboro sign reflected in the window?

  8. The little boy is lost in his own little world…a great street scene! Well done!
