4009 – Sit Down, Relax!

Do you remember images that you’ve taken? Normally I do, especially those that I’ve decided to post-process. Of course I remember this image as well. I remember the place, the time of day, everything, but it feels like it had been ages ago.

Munich is some time ago, but it definitely feels like “this year”. Even the ice images from January feel closer than this one. Why? I have no idea.

4008 – Newspapers for Free!

Vienna has two newspapers that are distributed at underground stations for free. They are also the worst kind of newspapers imaginable. Still, people read them and they even have political influence. It’s hard to understand, but it’s harder to argue with facts. Although, the whole concept of facts seems to be of diminishing importance today 🙂

3999 – Zig Zag

This is a cheap apartment building with a nice facade, especially in this late light. I’ve seen some apartment floor plans, and they are all the same and among the worst.

Basically you have a small balcony that is the width of the whole apartment. The balcony is on the short side of a long, narrow room with no other windows. Then, in the middle of the apartment there is a bathroom without windows at all, followed by another long room with its only windows on the far side. Basically the apartments are a series of stacked tubes. It does not help either, that the balconies face a loud and busy street. Horrible.
