Lazy Sunday afternoon

This also fits the title of my last contribution in Wikiloops:

Cookie, contemplating…

“Should I go in?” (spoiler: he didn’t)

Cookie, Mörfelden-Walldorf 2022

He had been in before, after a bit of bass playing on my side, so I gave him something to eat and to drink. Outside again, he just wanted to smooch a bit…

Cookie, and an ice café

Yesterday, Zuleikha & Mitchie wanted to have some ice cream, so we went to an ice café in Groß-Gerau, where Zuleikha’s school is. On the way out, we saw cookie:

After the ladies got their ice cream, I took a photo of the place:

That’s right in the central part of Groß-Gerau, I marked it on Flickr.

Later when we were back, Cookie visited us again, and after having some snack, he looked back at me from the veranda before he left again, like this:

Art buyers

Last time we were in Frankfurt, I discovered that little store where they sell limited photography prints of all kinds of things. Mitchie and Zuleikha loved it, once inside and browsing, and in the end they bought a smallish (and not so limited) print of the library of Trinity College in Dublin. You can see a bigger version left of them in the shop:

They packed it nicely, and it’s not even unpacked yet:

Cookie, wet as a cat

We’ve had some pretty hefty showers lately, and at the moment it’s still some light drizzle – so Cookie, one of our neighbours’ cats came in twice quite wet already. But after having some dry cat food and some rubbing against our legs, he felt quite comfortable laying down on the carpet in front of the TV set:

Missing Wilma since a while… but since both Mitchie and Zuleikha were sure that Wilma was pregnant, she must have given birth by now, and is probably busy with her kittens…

By now Cookie retired to some quieter area (he prefers Zuleikha’s room and bed), so the birds are back picking up their food outside.

As always, thanks for viewing.

Police⁵ in front of Ratskeller

Today we ran into a group of anti vaxxers who were protesting against our suppression state as they called it – while the police had to protect their rights to freedom of speech… I took a group shot of the officers’ cars:

And that demonstration itself? Sorry, but I won’t show hatred on my pages… enough that these poor guys (and girls) had to work.

Four more photos from ten years ago

I’m looking for some older photos which I either took in black & white or which could be converted to black & white, and probably be used as screen backgrounds in a 16:10 format (my monitor has a resolution of 1920×1200 pixels which I much prefer to the usual 16:9).

But first, here’s one of the cameras I used ten years ago, together with my favourite lens on it, and photographed using my Olympus E-520 DSLR with the wonderful 50mm/2 macro lens. This is in 4:3 format because the subject more or less filled the frame:

Olympus E-PL1 and Panasonic Lumix G 20mm/1.7, Mörfelden-Walldorf 2012

And the next three photos were either made with that camera or with the DSLR, all taken in Mittenwald, and converted to black & white and to a 16:10 format:

Two more photos from Frankfurt

Picked up Zuleikha again, and took two photos. First the FAZ newspaper buildings again, from a different angle:

Then, around another corner and actually closer to where Zuleikha was learning, the “Galluswarte” watchtower:
