This is the light that shines
This is the leaving of another love
This is the howling at the moon
These are the arms you fell into
I am a fire and I must burn today
This is an echo
This is the glory
This is the pounding of a midnight heart
Hamburg. September 2010.
The container harbour on the opposite bank of the River Elbe is the source of this immense amount of light pollution. They're working twenty-four hours and seven days a week over there. The building in the left has been featured in this previous picture, too.
It's the beginning of another week of hard work and I should be sleeping right now as I type this. However, I just had to get this picture out there. On Sunday, I drove over to Hamburg to meet up with a friend I went to school with in London; after graduation, Paul moved to China, where he worked for a German company for two years, and now he's back in Europe and came around to visit. It's a surprise though that more than half of us have left our posh London suburbs to study or work in another country.
