Strange Days

I sense that something is different. This is not the usual crowd. The thought rushes by and fades. I step off the train, walk a few streets … and I see.

D-14-73

Marbled bodies …

D-14-48

… watch colorful people.

D-14-47

D-14-50

Drinks are available …

D-14-56

… where the parade assembles …

D-14-65

… under the watchful eyes …

D-14-89

… of the force.

D-14-85

D-14-91

I ask myself: Is this intentional, or is this one of the great jokes that coincidence tells once in a while?

D-14-87

I leave before the parade starts, pass through streets less colorful …

D-14-77

… more minimalistic …

D-14-81

… that have other ways to show off.

D-14-84

D-14-83

People walk alone …

D-14-90

… in pairs …

D-14-93

… or choose other companions, …

D-14-117

… but two seems to be …

D-14-107

… my favourite number.

D-14-127

Shops offer seats …

D-14-171

… cookies …

D-14-101

… and coffee, …

D-14-179

… or dare me to enter.

D-14-156

Mixed messages try to hide change.

D-14-176

Old ideas …

D-14-180

… find new incarnations.

D-14-185

Some things seem to resist, …

D-14-98

… others compromise, …

D-14-137

… or gracefully degrade, …

D-14-147

… but time always wins.

D-14-95

People fight to make the moment last …

D-14-143

… or to last the moment.

D-14-230

I reach the waterfront …

D-14-295

… where some things seem out-of-place …

D-14-210

… and others out of time.

D-14-208

The victims of change rust in peace …

D-14-258

… where artists create …

D-14-283

… the signs of our times.

D-14-284

People stand in line …

D-14-274

… for the illusion of an escape.

D-14-271

What is it, that makes some swim like fish, …

D-14-150

… or resist like rocks, …

D-14-247

… while others despair?

D-14-184

What is it, that carries some things through time …

D-14-352

… lets us remember some names …

D-14-354

… while everything else crumbles?
