Yes, Jeff, this is certainly not the usual tag-and-run thing.

Markus Spring said at 2017-03-23 21:46:15:
Oh, that could be nice - the Hamburg guys usually have strong fists. I admit that Spencer seriously challenges my pacifist mindset :(

Looks more like a carefully done abstract mural than common graffiti. Makes for an interesting photo.

Fine capture ... but I guess Richard Spencer was not here.

Yep. Sehr gut. ;-)

John, you probably know my aversion against cranked-up saturation, and this image indeed received just the standard treatment. But the green in Ireland can be tremendous, even in subdued afternoon light under low-hanging clouds.

Carl, as this passage is quite low-ceilinged (what a word - is this really in active use?), the camera has to be armored, otherwise it would be destroyed in no time.

Markus Spring said at 2017-03-21 22:21:04:
Aber Du siehst, wie wohlerzogen die Hamburger sind: sie zupfen lediglich an Plakaten, anstatt die Wände zu verschmieren...

Markus Spring said at 2017-03-21 22:19:34:
Danke, Walter! Das Bild steht vorne auf meiner Liste der Bilder, die ich drucken werde.

If I didn't know better I would think those vibrant greens mush be pushed, but I am sure it is the mark of spring and renewing rain. It is, after all, Ireland! Nice.

Is that CCTV just a really clunky design, or is it armored?

walter said at 2017-03-20 20:42:26:
Wenn schon nicht die Wand verunstaltet werden kann, so darf doch das Plakat darunter leiden ;-)

Da macht nicht nur der Zug halt, nein, auch mein Auge hält inne. Tolles Bild!

Thank, Jeff. As the rain was comparatively warm in August, it was not hard to embrace. And I do love to see landscapes in rain, much more than with blue sky.

Thanks, Carl. I don't know what caused the flare, but here it worked to my favor.

Markus Spring said at 2017-03-13 12:47:12:
Juha, true disciples will sleep in the rain outside the temple if new truth is available for sale - which I guess you don't do ;)

Carl Weese said at 2017-03-12 20:51:18:
Nice, somehow the flared reflection is perfect, shining above the temple activity.

Juha Haataja said at 2017-03-12 17:44:37:
Well spotted, and titled! (I guess I am quite a victim of the cult, with several MacBooks, an iMac, an iPad and an iPhone on my conscience.)

Markus Spring said at 2017-03-11 23:03:07:
Gut, gell!

Markus, any day out on the waterway is an adventure. Lovely contrast of red with gray skies. Always enjoy your Irish posts.

Markus said at 2017-03-10 14:40:06:
Uwe, ich betrachte es als Glücksfall, wenn mein Auge solche Szenen nicht nur wahrnimmt, sondern wirklich *wahr* nimmt. Dann kann der Geist arbeiten ;)

Jeff, the Karoviertel (Karo-Quarters) in Hamburg is one of the places where slow gentrification meets a quite steady population of long-time residents, usually much less affluent than the newcomers. So rents are still low in many places, attracting the alternative scene and creative young people.

Hängende Gärten ;-) Ich mag solche Bilder, die aus gewöhnlichen Motiven Kompositionen aus Linien und Flächen machen. Der Schriftzug belebt zudem die Fantasie. Gruß, Uwe
