The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Yesterday, my friends and I were on our way to a cafe in Montreal to have breakfast before heading back to Jersey. When we reached the cafe, we found ourselves at a set of a Hollywood production. Turns out that this is a movie that will come out 2008 featuring Brad Pitt playing a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards. The story starts at the beginning of the 20th century and goes all the way to our times. So this street was full of people looking like people used to look in the 1950s. I found that very cool. They blended in very well between the old buildings. One of them told me that they are actually shooting scenes that take place in Paris, but the producers seemed to have chosen Montreal, because it is not that busy. Here are two snapshots. The first one shows extras waiting for their action. The second one is a little rehearsal with moving cars and pedestrians. I whish I would have more time and the permission to take more pictures.

Trip to Montreal

Monday is Memorial Day which was invented to honor war dead. Well, most people I know are not really affected by war dead. They honor having a long weekend and the beginning of the pool, beach and barbecue season. I for my part will take the chance and go on a little trip to Canada.

There are so many details in it...I think a very large print of that would be something nice to look at.

Sometimes I do weird things with my camera. For example photographing friends.
Tammy and Henry, the dance maniacs.

Newspaper Article

For those who are interested and have access to it: Today there is an article about me and my life abroad in a local newspaper called "Nassauische Neue Presse". It's basically part of a series about people who come from that area, but live in foreign countries. A while ago they asked me if I'd like to participate. I said "suure, why not" and here we go.

E wie Einsamkeit

"...Loneliness is a feeling of being cut off, disconnected and alienated from other people. The lonely person may find it difficult or even impossible to have any form of meaningful human contact. Lonely people often experience a subjective sense of inner emptiness or hollowness, with feelings of separation or isolation from the world..."

Local Legends

Year: 2004
Location: Homebase, Germany
Equipment: Compact Camera with 3.2 Megapixel

What I noticed is that Americans are often surprised hearing that Skateboarding exists in Germany, thinking that it's limited to California.
I actually don't think it took long finding its way to Europe after it was invented in the 70s.
