I just realised you have unsettled me ... the photo is in colour :-)

Wow, great timing, great capture -- the sun beating off her face, her thirsty look, caught mid-gulp with the juice.

By the way, I am keeping "Teutonengrill" in funny word storage somewhere in the back of my brain. That, and "google-foo."

kobico, thanks very much :-D

"Teutonengrill" always gives me the image of middle aged men with huge bellies, glaring red like lobsters, lined up on a grill ... broilers ;-)

This is a spectacular image that screamed out to be in colour!

What are they looking at?

Talk about the decisive moment ...

Martina said...

Julie, they are not looking at something specific as I recall, just sitting there, it was a huge crowd.

This photo is well worth splashing out with some colour

This is one of those photos that just NEEDS to stay coloured!

The quote and this picture..
Awesome Martina!!

Do you read first and then heading out in the field or how do you work?

Anna, usually I browse through the folders on my computer and upload the photo that has been coming to my mind -- then I have a look at the novel/short story etc I am reading and search for a quote.
In the last five or six postings it went the other way round, don't know why ... perhaps my brain needs the alternation?
btw I am reading /besides some New Yorker I have to catch up with/ "Ont blod" by Arne Dahl right now - in German of course, ;-). Wondering if it gives the right impressions about Sweden and the Swedish ...
