    Ich habe damals 2006 (schon so lange her) auch solche Troubadoure am Yachthafen in Vancouver gesehen. Schönes Foto Adele.

    "Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off—then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can." (from the opening chapter of "moby dick")

    …or, at least sing a song about it! ; )) i like the wistful feel to this shot, the somewhat "melancholy light" and the classic maritime surroundings, with the big sail and a glimpse of the harbor in his back! hugs, sabine.
  • Emilio Sirletti 02/18/2012 8:06

    A guitar with 12 strings, quite rare.
    A beautiful portrait with a soft white black.
    I wish you a good weekend with this song for my son.
    Ciao, Emilio
