Story of the image:

Last Sunday I again was in the citypark of Hamburg. It was very hot and lots of people were out there. For me personally, too much. So I didn’t get in the mood of doing good photography. I was on my way home, arguing with myself ‚cause of not taking any good picture, as I saw this scenery here. I then thought, hey, this could be my photo of the day. So, NEVER give up, always look around you, everywhere is a good picture. It’s on you to find it. And take your time, don’t hurry.


Post-processing was a lot of fun. I did some general adjustments and then thought of b/w. Did some selective adjustements on b/w layers, added some old-skool-film-grain and a very slight vignette. Hope you like it as much as I do.
