corner view: music










lisa picked music as this week's corner view theme. and what a lucky coincidence - last saturday berlin was full of music. a couple of years ago someone must have thought how lucky the french are, having their fête de la musique - and why not jump on the bandwagon, too? ever since, the idea seems to have gathered momentum and there are stages - professional and make-shift alike - in many parts of town where people gather for free open-air concerts. the weather has been good, too (not a given this year, it has rained and rained and rained in june so far), so everybody was out and about and making, or listening to music. i went to see a stage not far from my house in prenzlauer berg. see how everybody was there with friends and family? they were sitting on the sidewalks, on the street, on the scaffolding, on windowsills, on bikes and tricycles. wish you could have been there too!

take a look at the other corner views around the world via jane's at spain daily. what a great idea to make us share glimpses of the corners we live in - thank you so much jane!

see that little guy on his tricycle? he was fast as lightning! (hm - looking at it again, it's not really a tricycle, is it? more of a fourcycle...)

How was your holiday?

Happy Day, Kristina!

liebe kristina, nochmal, dein neues blog kleid ist super :-) du hast über music geschrieben, und ich habe auch ganz viel street style darin erkannt. oh, diese roten schuhe, super..den californischen song habe ich auch grad gehört. gefällt mir gut. werde ihn morgen bei der arbeit noch ein bisschen hören...du bist sicher bereits in vorferienlaune. freue mich mit dir und sende dir herzliche grüsse*

latisha said...

wow. i felt like i was walking with you while you were taking this pictures. it is so hard to capture action. you did it so well!

Jodi said...

fourcycle so funny. i had to go back and look. he's going fast - so were you.. thanks for the post.

Ida Nielsen said...

Wish I could be there too, looks like it was a lot of fun!
I love the movement in your pictures-so full of life!!

isabelle: thank you! that would have been fun!

b: i've never been to the queen's birthday in the netherlands but really want to - some day!
and i promise to post pictures of my holiday when i'm back (going 1-11 july, yay!)

jane: it was! and now you're saying it i realise this is probably more of a street style post than last week's... :)

cris: thank you so much!

lisa: thank you! it's a cool colour, isn't it?

april: danke, das freut mich! und die schuhe finde ich auch ganz toll. habe mich gefragt, ob die vielleicht von A.P.C. sind... dir einen schönen tag!

latisha: thank you! particularly the kids are just too fast... ;) but even if my little camera was able to capture the speed with which they are running more sharply - i kind of like the blurred effect. :)

jodi: thanks! :) had i been a four-year-old, i probably would have spotted the difference right away, must be getting old!

ida: thank you - i love it when movement shows that way. it really has advantages to shoot some pics with a rather crap camera! (seriously, sometimes i really like the fact that my small camera has very limited options).

kristina & julochka: i would so love to come (have in fact already checked flights...), but have a work-related thing that very weekend in september. if i can make it somehow, i'll let you know - would be so much fun!!!

How wonderful to find your blog and corner view post! I have pictures of our fete de la musique from Palo Alto, California, for this weeks corner view. My husband's band played Klezmer and eastern european music there. Come take a look! Thanks :)
