She comes around here just about midnight
She makes me feel so good
I wanna say she make me feel all right
Comes a-walkin' down my street
Then she comes up to my house
She knock upon my door and then she comes to my room
Yeah, an' she make me feel all right

And her name is G-l-o-r-i-a
G-l-o-r-i-a, Gloria
G-l-o-r-i-a, Gloria
I'm gonna shout it all night, Gloria
I'm gonna shout it every day, Gloria

(Van Morrison - Gloria)

Hamburg, Germany.
March 2012.

Couldn't find no more pictures in my archives that were good enough to post on my blog... so I went out tonight and took some long exposures. It's my day off, and I had to run a few errands this morning... there's a few things on my mind as well, so I really enjoyed driving around town for a couple hours.

In a previous blog post I mentioned one of my favourite customers at the coffee shop (in fact, both of my favourite female customers are blondes). Yesterday, I finally learned her name.

This coming Saturday is Saint Patrick's Day. I'll go on a pub crawl with my colleagues. One of them will come along to Berlin - I'll be there from the 29th to 31st of March. 

In another previous blog post, I mentioned that some of my friends invited me to accompany them on a trip to Denmark. However, I've had to decline the invitation this week because I've already got other plans for the week they've decided on. If you've read my previous blog posts, you know that Denmark was only my fourth choice for my summer holiday (my first choice was a road trip around Scandinavia with my best friend, my second choice was visiting Israel, and lastly, my third choice was another American road trip). I haven't made a decision where to go now. One of my colleagues is from Belgium, and apart from having a cute accent, she told me a lot of nice things about her country... maybe I'll go there.

Have a great week.

- Dom

Beautiful night photo! I especially like the area of the stairs that lead to the water.

I like your long exposure shot :) Not a museum but a school for social workers ;)

James & Ely: Thanks very much!
