Rosalita



Now I know your mama she don't like me
'cause I play in a rock and roll band

(Bruce Springsteen - Rosalita)


Band photo session.
Hamburg, Germany.
Autumn 2011.


From top to bottom: Lukasz was born in Poland but has been living in Hamburg for a long time, where he's buying and selling old cars. Erik is from Nebraska; he's also a member of the local philharmonic orchestra, where he plays the upright bass. Jesper, who rode all the way up to Denmark on a Schwalbe, and Matthias are both from Hamburg. These four guys were in a band which broke up when Jesper decided to devote his time to his solo project and when their female lead singer, who's not pictured here, moved to South Africa.

Click here to watch an amazing video, which is part of the so-called Project Yosemite
I'd also like to recommend once again my favourite travel and photography blog, "A Restless Transplant". I love the 35mm photographs and the anecdotes. The blog is authored by a dude called Foster Huntington; he bought a Volkswagen Syncro and left his job in New York City to drive around the country.

Have a nice evening.

I alreadyd had all the songs on other LPs and CDs plus mp3, but it was an irresistible collector's item because that cover is awesome! :-)
