3994 – Birds in a Frosty Sky

I took these images one morning in Klagenfurt while visiting my parents. The “birds” are stickers on a noise barrier in front of their house.

I remember how I showed the images to my father to cheer him up – and how I completely failed. At that time he had already fallen into depression. He couldn’t do what he wanted to do any more and, if I think of it, the glass wall must have felt like a prison wall to him.

It makes me sad.
