POINT BLANK: BOCHUM / GERMANY

deep in the west…

“sun still fighting, through smoke and steam
life here’s better than you could ever dream
i know you’re no beauty, for work’s lined your face
you don’t like wearing make-up, you’re an honest place
where the human race isn’t always in competition

your heartbeat’s of metal, it hammers out through the night
the foundation of prosperity, you’re a working town
don’t let them put you down, you bloom in your own way

bochum i call you home, bochum you’re in my bones, oh, glück auf – my home

you’re not a neon playground, there are no fashion shows here
you’re not a postcard for the tourists, here it’s the heart that counts
not the size of bank accounts, you’ve never sold yourself away

bochum…

may your smile shine on forever, through the cold dust it gleams
be proud of your tiny gardens, proud of your traffic lights
proud of your chimney-stacks, proud of your football team!

bochum …     oh, glück auf”

( ‘Bochum’, Herbert Grönemeyer )

POINT BLANK: CITY OF STYLE

They say that Düsseldorf is a city of style, because the fashion industry is settled there and people like to show what they got.

But lets see if we can find some different styles in photography as well. Oh, see what Markus got here…  😉

In the exchange where lies are marketed,
Hoping my own lies will attract a bid.”
