We are heading south from Frankfurt. Came off the motorway to avoid traffic jam, driving towards Bavaria, hot and sunny.
Frankfurt was good for photos, interesting buildings, the River Main, clear blue skies and hot. Ran off 120 rolls of Ilford FP4 (10 shots a roll), both day and night.
The modern skyscrapers were better lit on Thursday evening than Friday. Apparently they turn off the lights on environmental grounds for part of the week. Luckily I took my night shots on Thursday.
Had a useful meeting with Antje, an artist agent that we met 3 years ago at licensing show in New York – our stands were opposite, about working together. We have a contract to go over but we agreed to go forward and just sort fine detail. We actually bumped into Antje on the street while looking at the map on Thursday afternoon and went back to her house for a coffee and met her 2 sons.
Last night we had an nice time with Antje and husband Steffen. First they took us to a pub in Sachsenhausen for a meal and beers then along to a bar at the river.
Tonight we arrive in Garmisch-Partenkirchen for 4 days in the Bavarian Alps.
