I watched people walking through the pouring rain in Manhattan, sitting dry on the stairs of the New York Public Library, 42nd Street. Suddenly the door opened behind me and a lady walked down to join the crowd on the boardwalk. It was a hard rain. Some people put plastic bags over their heads, protecting themselves, others ran into small shops, this woman left aristocratically with an English-style umbrella the Library, walking like a goddess, provoking a man to hesitate. Some months later several painters asked me, if I would give permission to paint the situation, they had found via google on my flickr photostream
I stopped my car, driving to Liberchies, Belgium, the Django-Reinhardt-Festival had to wait; this was my first shot, taken with a digital camera, after our analog Minolta with 36mm KODAK-film had been demolished. This image of the unequal couple has been the first ever on the display of my brand new digital Canon Power Shot A_700. The two honeymooners, looking out of a window in the evening, they maybe wanted to take a walk to the nearby guitar-festival too (like me), but they were badly fenced in…
I looked to the sky and there I saw the balloon coming surprisingly near to the peak of the Neptune sculpture in my hometown. I had to grab my camera very fast out of the bag not to miss the climax of the situation. Looking to the sky, trying to find a dramatic point of view, I nearly trampled down a little dog crossing my odd path on the boardwalk.
