me-

I started the day yesterday with a nice breakfast on the balcony.
The sun was shining and I really enjoyed having the whole day in front of me with not a fixed plan how to spend it.
I biked to the city and passed the Gängeviertel. An area in which artists use spaces which are owned by the city but which doesn't really take care of it. There were so many little corners to explore.

I think it is great having usual workdays off, every now and then...
It feels a bit like being outside of the wheel in a more observing and watching role, like being able to enter and leave peoples' everyday life and very different to a Sunday for example...This sounds weird I know, but it is hard to explain : )

I understand you..it sounds not weird.I like to see people in there hasty position while I have all time of the world. Its gives me a homy feeling. Funnny don´t you think?

Marion said...

Yep, I love to have a day off when the other people are working.
it has to do with feeling free probably !

no, it doesn't sound weird, i think sundays are different from every other weekday and watching people rush by and imagining what they have been doing is really a relaxing way to spend your day off.
I love these pictures of the artist neighborhood. It seemed like a circus camp to me at first.

schöne fotos (mal wieder:)!
das gängeviertel klingt sehr interessant, wenn ich nach hamburg komme, muss ich da unbedingt hin. dachte auf den ersten blick es wär sowas wie die wagengruppe.
das mit dem freien tag versteh ich gut, das is dann ein bisschen so, als konntest du mitten in einem fluss stehen bleiben und die strömung vorbeirauschen spüren...

Wow, is the "Maler" one a reserved parking space for an artist? First time I ever see one!

Workdays off are the best!!!
