Streetart Brooklyn and NYC Pt.1

So, first post.

I decided to start with my favorite topic, streetart of Brooklyn and New York City. I walked like a lot through town in the first two weeks of march 2015. I walked through snow, through rain, through sunshine. Alone and with friends. And I took some photos.

Truth be told: I didn’t enjoy New York it as much as the first time. It was a good time, but some times I felt alone and lonely, but watching some art that came from the streets and for the streets cheered me up quite a bit!

First part, here it comes the snowy day in Williamsburg

Summer Edition ‘012 Day 38 4th of September: No Title

When I woke up my foot was worse than the day before- great!!!

I think I walked too much but still there’s so much to see! Classical dilemma! (At this point of my voyage I didn’t know my foot was broken… I found afterwards in Germany!)

Went straight to Picadilly Circus to buy a ticket for “We Will Rock You”- which was a great decision! I went to Notting Hill to finally see the Portobello Road Market! Beautiful I can tell, bought a “Notting Hill Shopping Bag”, the design of Natalie Imbruglia (there are several designs), bought at a 1 pound shop a film roll!!! & I found some original Banksys!!! Whoohoo! Found a famous one which is already protected & a new one- still I am not 100% sure if it is a Banksy grafitty or not. (Edit: It wasn’t) I was proud finding something on my own without the help of a smartphone or other devices!

I waited for Sharif but when he didn’t show up after 2 hours of waiting ( I am good at waiting but enough is enough :D)  I left for Camden Town. I liked it but when I went to Camden Lock Market on the ground I really felt uncomfortable, you know. My issue. And I just needed and wanted to leave and so I did. Glad, Sharif showed up not long after that.

there was one too… :(

Then we went “Banksy Hunting” together, which was really fun! Some we found, some were already gone. Sharif took me to Brick Lane, Beigel Bake where we had delicious pieces of cheese cake, which he gave to me. It was four pieces and he was like “Ms. Church, you eat all of them…” He is a little crazy, you know… Four pieces for me? I don’t think about that too long!!! ;) (He took 1 piece at least).

Unfortunately we didn’t have so much time for I had to be at the Dominion Theatre around 7 o’clock to pick up my ticket.
I enjoyed “We Will Rock You” so much!!! It wasn’t sold out so I could get an even better place I had before (and this one was good as well, and cheap!) So I had a great seat in the stalls of only 40 pounds! I really liked the show but I already told you that I guess =)

I went to New Oxford Street to see one more Banksy & went home.

at night at Picadilly

The movie “Anna Karenina” (by Tolstoj) had it’s premiere at the Odeon Cinema & when I went there after the show everything was gone already, no Jude, no Keira, too bad :P But I had a nice day though!

Summer Edition ’012 Day 18, 15th of August: Walking about

It is wednesday and guess what! Peter No. II from Kaiserslautern just wrote me that him, hs girlfriend Sarah &  his flatmates I also know are just about to be here in Stockholm!!! How cool is that? The last time I saw Peter was at my gig in Kaiserslautern in july. But all the others I saw the last time when I was still living here, so more than 2 years ago! I will probably meet them tomorrow.

Today we went shopping groeries at Hemköp which I really like! They have a big candies (godies) shelf with STAR WARS  godies!!! How great is that???

I need to learn a lesson (Oh, I should have learnt that one, seriously): Do nothing & enjoy! I am still learning by doing but it is hard. Yesterday I was crocheting but today not. Also playing no guitar!

Veronica and me were walking up a small hill in Södermalm where the view was great! Should be beautiful in the evening when the sun is setting.

Later we were going for a little walk as well in Södermalm and we had pizza in the evening and we watched “Eragon”, which I hadn’t seen before! This is also a vacation where I will see many movies I haven’t seen before and kind of wanted to.

We went to sleep quite early, but still I am pulling up my energy!
