Week 42 – Simply Mario

This is the man ….. always good for a surprise!

(even if in this case it just happened to be his wife’s wooly hat!)

Week 26 – Kim Wilde and the Siblings

The Economist was recently titled “The man who screwed an entire country” accompanied by a picture of Silvio Berlusconi. In Potsdam it isn’t a single man but more a political morass of people who were on the payroll of the regime before the fall of the wall. One of the latest victims has been the local public services company which hosts the annual music festival in Potsdam. This year’s roll call included Simple Minds, Robin Gibb and Kim Wilde.

The first shot was taken as a candid during Kim Wilde’s “Cambodia”. My covert skills obviously leave a lot to be desired as my subjects quickly spotted my intentions. The second shot was taken with their kind permission.

My thanks go to these unknown siblings on a bench.
