2411 - transition

setup: sony nex 7 with sigma 30 f2.8 ex dn | 30mm | f2.8 | ISO100 | 1/1000 | lightroom 4.2

after an evening like yesterday's it's always good to face up to the opposite side of the society. while my girls were insensitively shopping in the rhein-neckar-mall of mannheim-viernheim, i had the time to stroll around the blocks. there weren't many coloured dots to find in the middle of the almost brown and partly abandoned environment.

the transitions there from the occupied areas to the abandoned and inhospitable ones are hard, immediate and obvious. a suburb of mannheim in the year 2012: plain straight.

2311 - privileged point of view

you may agree with me that there are a few events in everyone's life that remain unforgettable. since i haven't the possibility to get treated in a vip box every weekend, a stadium attendance like today's will be surely held in my head for my whole life.

it was the second time that i watched a hockey match from this privileged point of view. what is sure is that the possibility to obtain only a standard ticket for the top match between cologne (2nd) and mannheim (1st) was vanishingly low, but the chance to get a vip ticket was definitely non-existent for relatively ordinary people like us. for that reason i'm all the more thankful for this event to our best friend jeen, who had invited us to mannheim.
