Before the rain.

Posted on May 20th, 2015


The weather these days is cold and rainy. Hard to believe that these pictures were taken a week ago – the sun was still out and we went on a walk towards the lake, passing through the university quarters, a hidden garden and the old town of Zurich. We passed meadows with flowers and those kinds of grass that tickle in your nose, lined up lemon trees, abandoned workshops and tiny and even tinier houses.


Morning walks.

In the mornings when the light is still crisp, I walk to work. There are many different routes I can pick, some take longer than others, but all of them allow for spontaneous detours. They lead me to the most picturesque parts of this city, where later in the day and on weekends the tourists will roam. But in the early hours I have them mostly to myself. Sometimes I spot some early birds, camera and travel guide in hand, or others like me on their way to work or university. In the morning I can pretend to be many things, an explorer, a photographer or maybe just a tourist in my own hometown, and when I sit at my desk, facing the tasks for the day, I can always already look back on those little experiences and silent encounters.

Can I go back?


(April & March, 2014)

You might have realised that my blogposts become more and more a-chronological. I have to admit, that I enjoy this quite a lot, as it allows for some time travel. I am happy to take you on those trips with me, dear reader.
