I have moved twice this year. A lot of stuff has been throwed away to the trash bin. Now I finally managed to sort my old paper photos, that were stuffed in a shoebox. It seems I liked the photos with white outlines back then and why not, they look pretty. I scanned these and used them as cloud backgrounds for all kind of architecture renderings many times in the late 90´s, so the white lines never made much difference. Now they look great here on my swanky dark parquet floor.
I remember taking these photos on the carpet cleaning balcony of the large apartment house where I had a teeny weeny rented apartment. I lived in the first floor but I often went to the balcony in the 7th floor, because there was so good views over the city. Trouble was that there was this old lady who didn´t like me being there. She usually just yelled from her window near by the balcony that I can´t clean the carpets at that hour or she would go to the landlord to make a complaint on me. Strange behaviour as I didn´t even have carpets with me, I just took a roll of photos and went away. This happened many times but I never saw her as she was hiding behind the wall so I couldn´t see her from the balcony. The mystery lady of the 7th floor. Little did she know how uninterested I was in human interaction back then. I have the photos here to prove it!
