Fisherman's Dream

Hamburg at night.
Germany. November 2011.

What happened to the fisherman's love
Was it nowhere to be found
What happened to the love of the fisherman
When it drove him to the high, high ground
What happened to the love of the fisherman
When they drove that last nail down
What happened to the fisherman's love
When they laid him in the ground

Tell me, did it fade away?
Did it fade on down to the ocean?
Did it fade away?
Did it fade on down to the sea?
To the ocean and the sea

As I roved by the dockside
One evening so rare
To view the still waters
And take the salt air
I heard an old fisherman singing this song
O take me away boys my time is not long

Dress me up in me oilskin and jumper
No more on the docks I'll be seen
Just tell me old shipmates
I'm taking a trip, mates
And I'll see them someday in Fiddler's Green

Take a look at the work of the following artists: Native Vermont; Conrad Roset; Raphael Bourelly. Last but not least there's a blog called Street Art London.

Have a nice day.

- Dom

Hi, I come here via AB'blog. Love your photos! By chance I've just returned from Hamburg so it's interesting to see your vision of this city:)
Greetings from Poland

@ Jenny: I've always loved folk music... and the Dubliners are true legends.

@ Angela: Vielen Dank Angela! :-)

@ Siddhartha: Thank you very much my friend!

@ Joo: Dziekuje! Hope you enjoyed your stay in Hamburg... I've been living over here for three and a half years now and I'm still enjoying it. :-)

Hallo Dominic
Danke für deinen netten Komentar auf meinem Blog.
Ich denke es ist die Faltentektonik wie im Falten- oder Kettenjura. Horizontal liegende junge Sedimentschichten sind durch den langsamen seitlichen Schub gefaltet worden (Mesozoikum). Hier wurde die Antiklinale von Fluss Durance durchbrochen.
Liebe Grüsse und einen schönen Sonntag

Danke Angela! Kann mich erinnern, sowas mal in der Schule gelernt zu haben. :-)

Me again. I'm in love with the city and enjoyed every minute there. By the way, thanks for linking my blog:)
(I can't find this option in yours!)

What stunning photos! No wonder my friend fell in love with Hamburg. She is hoping to move there next year.

That's cool! I'm sure your friend won't have any trouble adjusting to life in Hamburg. If she's English, she'll be happy to know that there's several British shops and pubs... and if she's one of your friends from South Africa, she doesn't need to worry either; there's an African shop as well, and I shouldn't forget to mention that one of my favourite restaurants is a place called Tropical Point, which offers a variety of Southern and Western African meals.
