It's good to know that the cold war is still alive and well. Three spots for Farmerjohn Hotdogs with a political twist.

Walking through Kreuzberg, I can't help but keep my eyes glued to the walls, much to my co-pedestrians chagrin. The other day, I came across the above.
Now, this is a huge wall, which spans most of a building. It's by Blu– (Streetfiles Archive), who has already brought me much photographic joy with other works of his, which the link above will take you to.
This wall is also in an awkward location from a photographic point of view. Short of climbing onto the roof of the building opposite, there was no way to capture it all in one take.
So, enlisting the help of my father, who has done more stitches than I care to think of (see this for an example), we set out to create a more complete view of this particular wall. It goes something like this:
I still consider this as something of a work in progress, but we're getting there. Thunderous Thursday!
It has been a while since I shot anything but walls with my Camera. So I headed out to the anti-nuclear demonstration, more out of the democratic principle that Germany is not ruled by a lobby, money or an oligarchy, than to protest against nuclear. And Camera came along. Be warned: what you are about to see is extremely subjective.
Friggday looms upon us once again, a clear and present threat to the week, which it is about to end. Before this happens, have some Berlin Walls. Above, find depicted an easy way to dispose of you beer bottle. Easy for you because you don't have to aim for the tiny hole of the trash can. Easy for those collecting bottles, and slightly more dignified, as they don't have to rummage though the refuse to amass their wealth of glass.
Inspired by a recent conversation about all things Alien. We realised that the fact that the basis for the Alien movies was an example of Swiss precision in all things is often overlooked. Hans Rudolf Giger is Swiss(ish) after all… This is a V1, more may come from this. I'm not quite happy with the hole in the paper yet, and quite a few interesting Xenomorph options have materialised since I started. The current Alien picture is from: http://www.ikoncollectables.com.au
Today is going to be a Vespering day. Depicted above is the setup for the sequence, in an attempt to completely demystify the process. Four lights, a bunch of lamps. The city encircles the protagonist. The protagonist, followed by a particle cloud of smoke puffs. Wind. Gravity. Vectors. This is the world of Vespa. TBC
This took a while longer than expected… The strip will make more sense if you listen to the Mad Men intro while reading it. The lighter is, by the way, a reduced version of the Braun "cylindric", and while less anachronistic than the Ikea chair, would not have existed in 1962. And Klapp needs a Girl to let him into his living room.
For clues and possible solutions to the brainteaser posed in the last post, look no further than this representation of Celestine (she needs a new name, I'm using up the e's on my keyboard). And more riddles to be posed and solved. Eventually.
Celestine takes the second step. from Caram Kapp on Vimeo.Celestine begged for animation from the moment I first laid lines on her… She had a Vespa and wanted to ride it and I was more than happy to oblige.
I will be having more fun with this in the near future.
