Public Transportation

I don't know about you but one of the things I like doing the most is just observing people. So I always enjoy public transportation because there is this mix of people in one place. I guess being a photographer is also sort of a natural thing because we are always curious about our surroundings. Street photography captures these moments we witness in our daily life in an unaltered and raw way.

Alessandra Ambrosio styled by Stevie Dance and photographed by Will Davidson for Russh August 2010

Russh Magazine always features some of the best editorials among the monthly published magazines and this issue doesn't disappoint in that regard. It is pretty interesting to see those Victoria's Secret models rocking editorials or ad campaigns for high fashion labels lately. Even the cover is very beautiful.

Bits And Bobs #51

Oversized Shirt by Lanvin, Chino Trousers by Topman, Vintage Bag, Random White Plimsolls, My Father's Old Panama Hat

So you probably ask yourself why anyone would buy an oversized shirt by such an expensive brand like Lanvin. When I saw it on sale for such a low price and touched that beautiful fabric I just could not resist. I also really like the puffy wide sleeves and the general loose fit due to the bigger dimensions of the shirt, because when it is so hot outside, you don't really want to wear a narrow shirt.

Home Stories Preview

As a long time follower of The Selby, I have always loved the idea of having a look inside other people's homes. It is so interesting to see how different people decorate their homes and to get to know the stories behind certain furnitures or objects. There are many people in Switzerland, who also have very nice decorated homes and this is why I decided to start asking them whether I could capture it all on photographs. I was very glad to hear that some agreed and so began my new project. I have photographed three homes so far (all belonged to couples) and want to give you a little preview of what is coming next on my blog. I am showing only some detail shots for now because I don't want to give away too much yet and I am not quite sure when I am going to start publishing them here either. If you happen to know anyone in Switzerland, who might be interested in participating in such a project, let me know by writing me an email.

I am not often in Oerlikon but when my friend suggested I should come and see Neu-Oerlikon (the newer part of that area) with him, I was totally stunned what they made out of the former industrial area of Oerlikon and how many new buildings and parks they built. Many people that live in the centre of Zurich around the old town or the popular Langstrasse (literally "long street") probably don't even know about it yet, because they rarely leave the centre – just like me. But I had to realise once again that Zurich has so many different faces and Neu-Oerlikon definitely deserves an entry on my blog for my Zurich City Guide.

There are two buildings I like in particular in Neu-Oerlikon. Above pictured is the MFO-Park, which is situated behind the railway station of Oerlikon. The park has two parts: a big steel construction shrouded in climbing plants and a square beneath. You can walk up on the sides of the construction over different stairs and passages until you reach the top where you get a view over the area. There are benches all along the way. The water supply for the climbing plants comes from the rain collected by the steel construction. Give it a few more years and the whole steel frame will probably be covered in plants.

Pictures below show a tower situated in the Oerlikerpark and one of the buildings surrounding that park. The tower's height is 35 metres and you can climb it via the stairs. Once you made it up there you get another view over Neu-Oerlikon and the rest of the city. The tower is supposed to be an element of the park that reminds people of the chimneys that used to be in the industrial area. There is another park called Wahlenpark nearby of which I didn't take any pictures because it looks better in the night and I was only there during the early evening with my camera. You will find a long beam where you can sit or lay down. The construction of the beam contains 7000 glass elements which are illuminated from the inside at night.
