. Everyday life or Halloween.

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see
I’m just a poor boy, I need no sympathy
Because I’m easy come, easy go
A little high, little low
Anyway the wind blows, doesn’t really matter to me, to me
Mama, just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger, now he’s dead
Mama, life had just begun
But now I’ve gone and thrown it all away
Mama, ooo
Didn’t mean to make you cry
If I’m not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters
Too late, my time has come
Sends shivers down my spine
Body’s aching all the time
Goodbye everybody I’ve got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
Mama, ooo (anyway the wind blows)
I don’t

.wander around aimlessly.

half a week is over now… the good thing, if you have time and money left, you can wander around aimlessly. just floating through the streets, random faces passing by, you are alone under 3 million people. target for the day is were to eat, and searching one of the thousand cute little cafes with open brick walls to have an amazing coffee and cookies in the size of my head.

target for the day – fulfilled!

next target, human observing, and stealing moments! a social study from the first worlds owner in their own urban environment.

stay tuned…

.locals only.

Hey friends,

the day is over. we´re laying tired in our apartment in brooklyn. it´s quiet. i missed the sirens from over the day, it gives you the wonderful permanent feeling of being in the slightly rotten apple. the never ending flood of influences gives you a mixed feeling from tension till discontent. it is superb dirty. not in a disgusting way! it is… charming.
carry bradshaw would end up with that clause:
… are we local now?

hahaha

we have a wonderful time here! the locals are amazingly pleasant, and i find myself thinking one hundred times a day: ” wow, i would love to live here for years!” each neighborhood is fantastic unique in his own way. my favorite is dumbo for the next two hours, since we join another one!

.i love driving escalator.

i can’t help myself… people have there own behavior on escalators. so dreamy, so far away, with themselves. anyway, it´s fascinating.

and belief me… i´m watching you.

.hit the streets.

discovering the streets, is always a pleasure. i prefer my leica m240 with a voigtländer nokton 35/1.4 or a summilux 50/1.4 asph, and i always have my m6-ttl on top for analog backup shots, to have some great darkroom sessions after that. the m6 is a beast and gives the perfect results.

if you have any questions feel free to contact me by: info@svendaubenfeld.de
