I've packed up all my stuff and brought it over to Lüneburg, where I'll be staying at my mum's place for three weeks until I can move into the new apartment. The last few days have been quite busy so I've spent all of today relaxing by the pool and catching up with what's happened on the internet.

Click the following links to view the pictures which have impressed me the most: #1; #2; #3. Click here and here to see funny newspaper headlines. I found this project quite interesting. This clip filmed at El Mirage Lake is awesome. I also enjoyed this animated short movie, which is about a Viking determined to reach Valhalla - the twist ending is brilliant.

I think I'll have lunch at one of my favourite restaurants in Hamburg this week. It's called Tropical Point. They offer a variety of delicious African cuisine and while I was listening to Johnny Clegg the other day, it came to my mind that it's been too long since I've last been there.

OOOO I haven't listened to this song in a LOOONG time! How wonderful it is <3 I bet you are happy to be out of the apartment! :) And even more excited about the new one.

Love the polaroids.

Great American. It looks good in the nostalgic Polaroid format.

Brooke: Thank you... glad you like the polaroids. You're absolutely right... I can't wait to move in. It's a shame I'll be away for most of the summer, but it'll be a great place to relax on the weekends after the exhausting excavation work.

AB: Thank you very much!

nice photos!
i watched the cold case episode with the bruce springsteen songs, and i can say without lying that the songs made the episode.
did you hear about clarence? hope he'll feel better pronto..

Dominic Doherty said...

Thank you Moa!
Yeah, those songs really made the difference...
No, I didn't hear about him until you told me. I hope so, too. The E Street Band wouldn't be the same without him.

Cool polaroids! Funny, that song immediately jumped into my head as soon as I read your title! Good luck with your move, it's always nice to be back with mom for a while (well sometimes).

Dominic Doherty said...

Thank you so much! Actually, my mum's not even here, she's on holiday. :-)
