Sundaymorning story about a messed up photoshooting

by Gerd Korts August. 07, 2009 5346 views

Imagine you are sitting Sunday morning in the metro on the way to a small village which is supposed to host a big working horse festival

Arrived there you have to realize that the streets are nearly empty

beergardens as well

And finally under these nice flowers you find an advertisment of this event and you found out that you messed up the dates. Festival will be next week.

First thoughts are of course “Back Home” baby you have messed it up

But then you remember the airport is quite close to that village and you wanted always to do……….

No, not duck hunting

But plane spotting

The first one was quite small

but they became bigger

Smaller again

and after those three only deep flying bikes. Unfortunately Sunday, so not that heavy traffic like during the week.

So between 2 planes you had time to find some other victims for your lens

A small one

and a large one again. After a view on the timetable of the airport (many thanks to those people who invented internet for mobile phones) I left because I remembered this nice beergarden from the beginning and more than one hour no plane. Do crews have a lunchbreak?

On the way back

I found this

and that


old advertisement ( for Germans this advertisement seems very ironic in this time of crisis)

Yellow pumpkins

and orange ones

But all of the sudden I had to realize that I left to early because the wind has turned and now they started in my direction

But meanwhile I was thirsty as this butterfly

and hungry as these chickens

and I didn´t want to feed myself only with berries

and finally I reached the beergarden and as the next pic you should imagine my profile photo

And some beers later I reached safely the metro station

wow, I'm really impressed :)
plane spotting was my hobby back in Poland- I used to go to the Warsaw airport, stand by the fence and take pictures. in Korea it's not really allowed to stand near the airport's fece... so I just shoot planes whenever I'm flying somewhere :)

that's good! you couldn't do the thing you planned, so you did sth else instead! great!
