Sweet September

You know it’s September when the trees wear gold-like crowns and there are golden carpets of leaves spread all around.

This is also the time I like to visit the swan family by the river Alster.
Sunny and still warm out, made me take a short trip to Jungfernstieg, the heart of the city. There was this deep blue sky that day that you just can’t believe your eyes so you keep looking at it, making sure you don’t miss out a cloud. Where on a sky like this you might see your dreams take shape in that velvety white.

What I love about strolling the city, is that along with discovering this beautiful city and learning new places, I get to actually feel its pulse, find hidden photography treasures. Completely mesmerized by its beauty, I find the City Hall in a new frame. As soon as I captured this moment, I see it for the first time since I am here, this old tower. I found my treasure.

Walking without taking my eyes off of it. Just like I was under a spell. Oblivious to what was going on around me, wondering how is this the first time I see this hidden jewel of architecture.
How was I to capture its moment, to transpose this fortress of time for everyone else to see what I see. Much like a story that hangs on every word from its narrator, to surpass the expectations and reach into the audience’s heart.
Perhaps there is nothing more to say about it than what it says for itself. Standing there proud, like a fortress watching over the Alster river and the serene faces walking around.

It was ,undeniably, a perfect day for a river cruise, clear piercing blue sky with a warm, soft breeze. However, I was lucky enough to just stretch my arms high, point the camera and take this moment home, treasure it.
What captured my attention was seeing a cute duck bathing, enjoying the solitude, secluded there between these cruise boats. The sun caressing each little wave she made. I did not dare to further interrupt.

All the love,
