day 314: pseudo idyllic
Yesterday I originally planned to go to the river Rhein to take some pictures, but in the end I stayed in for various reasons. This meant that I was left with very little boring suburbia to work with. I just took a few shots out of the window and left it at that, although I was largely unhappy with my efforts. The problem was that they just seemed too idyllic, this one probably being the most idyllic one of the lot. If you like suburbia, then you would love it here. However, I find it pretty annoying, because the neighbours are driving me crazy! Slamming doors at 7 am, someone vacuum cleaning the stairs at 9am, the landlord’s daughter cleaning her car in the driveway with blaring music and then the lawnmowers! You’d expect suburbia to be more quiet than the city with its many cars and the sirens, the big apartment buildings and so on, but to be honest it’s the other way round. Just like you can’t capture the horrific smell of the university buildings, it’s impossible to capture the annoying noisiness of suburbia.
