Different types of waiting #2

In Cuba people are used to wait for almost everything. Here they are waiting for some evening snacks that are about to be prepared…

Different types of waiting

These guys were not waiting for the bus, just hanging around – most likely waiting for time to pass by.

Ok, this shop offers a lot. Especially when taking into account that only few people in Cuba do own a CD-player. Person in the left corner is real, although it looks like a display mannequin.

Watching people watching life happening around them is so much fun.

Life in a display window #2

This time you can take the title literally. These waitresses were sitting in the fast-food restaurant waiting for customers to come to whom they can sell nothing at all. As I mentioned earlier, the display windows do look a little drab sometimes.

Some scenes are just looking like being arranged in a display window. Especially in Cuba these windows often are empty and a bit drab. [Havana, 2018]

After the work is done

I am so unbelievable happy!! Some of my work will be exhibited by Galerie Schürmann from 3rd Mach on. This is very special. Not only since I will be given this opportunity but also because the venue is only three houses away from the house where I grew up. So – in a way – I will return home. You can find more information here. Hope to see you there…

Inle Lake

Already quite touristic at that time, the lake and the surrounding landscape is impressive anyways. Though without the acrobatic fisherman

Sometimes, you need just a few minutes off. No Problem at all! Just put on your earphones and leave the world behind.

Was there alcohol involved?

The longer the parade lasted the smoother the movements became. I guess it was because of the heat and the alcohol – both came in heavy doses….
