carnival

helau!

DSC00758it’s carnival season and ‘helau!’ is the narrenruf in one of the capitals of carnival in germany – düsseldorf (as opposed to ‘alaaf’ in the even bigger capital of carnival – cologne). this is a window of the haus des karnevals in düsseldorf’s old town. i found it surprisingly austere.

you typically don’t get to notice  anything carnivalistic over here in berlin. that’s actually quite okay, though :)

a faint echo of carnival from venlo, the netherlands.

just in case you’re interested – this shot was made with the ‘full frame’ sony a7 camera and my trusty olympus om zuiko 100mm lens. i really like this combination a lot. unfortunately i had to return the a7 much too early for my taste…
