Everything is moving to fast

It's the first time since four years that my first post of the month is on the 18th. For a long time I was posting daily.
I was buisy with work and family. I wasn't really ill, but feeling unhealthy, with no energy and a long anoying cold.
Taking pictures, sorting and bringinh them on the blog is so much fun. I hope to find my regular basis again.

Walking home

On my way back from work, again from the long and nice route. I like to step out from the tram some kilometers before my station and walk instead of sitting. This is so wonderful! Glad that I take this 45 Minutes to exercise and just for my pleasure.

The Human Blue Whale in Lünen

This big mural is facing a former department store, empty since 2009, now under construction.

The Human Blue Whale is a very special work. Descripton below with the words from the artists website:
"On October 15, 2011, 59 women spoke loud and clear through their bodies on behalf of the largest living animal this planet has ever seen.

Together as one single organism, they formed the silhouette of a 28 meter (93 feet) long female Blue Whale, in the rich waters of the Gulf of California Mexico, where these animals come every year to reproduce and feed. Like an ancient ritual, this act had a purpose: to give back to nature and commit to protecting the marine corridors of the Blue Whale.

This ceremony of The Human Blue Whale is the work of the conservation artist Patricio Robles Gil. Los Rituales del Reencuentro is a series of art pieces in which he uses human bodies as canvases and sculptures, to represent the most endangered and emblematic animals on Earth.

That autumn day, the wind ceased and the sea surface was like a mirror. For many of the participants it was a memorable point in their lives.

Now, you can see the final image of The Human Blue Whale and help change the future for these giants."

Kite Festival Lünen #2

Today I changed my Blogger Profil (since 2008) to my Google+ Profil (since 2011). I was very active in the beginning of G+, but spent more time on other networks in the last year. As I'm trying to make a few changes on my blog, it was time for this step.

Kite Festival Lünen

 From the Drachenfest Lünen for Our World Tuesday. This is one of the biggest events in town and for me the most photogenic.

Looking up or I love libraries

There is a lot of glas under the entrance of the public library Stadtbibliothek Dortmund. I share it with The Weekend in Black and White and with Weekend Reflections
I do love this shot from a previous post and here is another one. This library is really great architecture. And it is wonderful inside. A fantastic place for reading and borrowing.

Cutting down

The Weekend in Black and White with this last shots from the tree in the neighbours garden. It was much to tall and to close to the houses. And after the violent storm in June, when the tall spruce from the neighbors on the other site hit our house (damaging our roof) I'm glad that this one is not standing anymore.

Before the rain #2

In Bremerhaven, Germany, I watched this big clouds for Sky Watch Friday. Here the river Weser is emptying into the Nort Sea.
