I don't know. It's Saturday night. It has been a beautiful Saturday-day.
Stadtpark (local park), floh-markt (flea market), sternschanze (cute
neighbourhood). And now, I'm sitting in bed in my underwear eating
chocolate. Skulking around on Facebook. Sigh. Anyways, it recently occurred
to me that I am taking issue with my recent induction into Nomadism. I'm
sqaundering, acting territorial, forming strong and unusual attachments to
routine behaviours and personal objects; to my camera for example. And I
have begun watching "Lost", somewhat obsessively. I know that life is about
phases and it's just that I'm a juvenile in this one. Anyways, cameras are
good and "Lost" is a cool show.
Work has continued to progress. If anything, my stay in Hamburg is going
to strengthen my portfolio. I did a cool test on Wednesday. I really got to
exercise my professionalism. Since it was one of the first sunny days in
Hamburg in weeks, the team decided to take the pictures outside. It was
sunny as hell with a high of six degrees and a definite windy-factor. I was
barelegged, wearing dresses and spring jackets. The mood was very cool.
Grunge. My favourite. I just got to slouch around looking sulky and
knowledgable about nineties-music, in front of these slick looking
multi-coloured walls. Right on! We earned those pictures. Man, it was cold.
Meanwhile, Canadian readers are saying, "Six degrees and sunny?!?" And
picturing Toronto denizens in sweatshirts, shorts, socks and birkenstocks.
Got to love those guys.
The rest of the week was go-sees and an editorial in Berlin, (unpaid and
a story in itself). Tomorrow I am heading to Dusseldorf for the type of
catalogue job I have been anticipating. So that's cool too.
