IMG_20171001_203612_599.jpgi’m ill this week. nothing too bad, just a cold. it started with my nose running (got though 100 tissues a day) and i was very weary and sleepy… but i’m very glad to be taken care of so perfectly by my favourite person!

_20171002_201407_i tried keeping up with what’s going on and the new design of my newspaper, but i didn’t get very far. now after a couple of days i’m feeling better, though still with a sore throat and a little slow in my head and easily exhausted. but i’m beginning to wonder…

collecting summer I (beach edition).

to keep track of all those amazing things i see while travelling, i like to focus on certain topics or objects for a page or a spread. here are some of my collections from this summer:

2017_07_RAWScans28my favourite dogs from the beach & campsite at molinella, gargano. (everybody kept calling pedro, but he simply didn’t care! pedro is the best! <3)2017_07_RAWScans9the best parasols at the beach.

2017_07_RAWScans7my favourite pets around our bus… beautiful lizards at the campsite in gargano (the three visiting regularly were “the small one”, “the middle one” and “the yellow one” and then we had one very special visit by “the ancient one”).

summer vacation + sketchbook = fun.

2017_07_RAWScans5is there anything better than having lots of time, a beach, sun & wind & waves… and a sketchbook on the side? we were on vacation at beautiful gargano, italy. here are some beachy impressions:

2017_07_RAWScans23the trabucco right around the corner (here is an explanation of what they are and what they are used for. all i know is that they’re used for fishing and that they look beautiful).

both exhibitions have just ended at c/o berlin. but the next great show is coming soon, i’m looking forward to josef koudelka!

fernweh – heimweh.

i can’t believe it! i managed to finish my never-ending to-do-list, my bags are almost readily packed and when i wake up tomorrow, i will be going on holiday, yay!

to celebrate travelling, here are some impressions of my neighbourhood close by, my kiez in berlin-wedding.

P1090660_view of the tv-tower from nordufer.

P1090634_friedrich-krause-ufer aka. the “nichts”. it’s a non-place. there’s nothing to see on that side of the spree! there are just lots of functional bridges for trains & cars, the ever ongoing construction site for the s-bahn, dirt, noise, everyone here is only passing by, passing & leaving this corner as fast as possible. but there’s something magic about lingering between all those busy bridges and being a quiet observer in the middle of  these crossroads that you wouldn’t usually ever take notice of.

field trip.

P1090577anne, david & i were on a little field trip to the spacious zoo of berlin-friedrichsfelde recently. here is some proof.

P1090580-“so, where exactly do we find the penguins?” (we didn’t…)

P1090630_we arrived at the park. we saw pelicans walking around freely on the grass. we stopped and stayed right there for half an hour under the burning sun.

P1090631_aren’t they just great?! such good shapes! also the pelicans were very calm, so easy to observe for a start.

P1090639_other birds were not as easy, quickly flying around. this is my impression of a strange kind of blue dove with long hair.

P1090584_this bird was very beautiful, but too quick for the sketchbook.

P1090643_rocks’n’rhinos!

P1090602_who would’ve thought ducks can be this photogenic?
