Munich: please don’t forget me

Is this about a flight of fancy, a wish that we should not be forgotten? A fine example of street-art? Or is this a plea, both poignant and provocative? One can see where someone had tried to remove at least one butterfly and break up pieces where the girl’s dress lies. This photo shows that whatever the artist’s (or the cleaner’s) intentions were, the work remains in our minds, and there, the image cannot be destroyed.

This is the outward-facing wall at the southwest corner of Isartalstrasse and Kapuzinerstrasse in Munich’s Isarvorstadt-Ludwigsvorstadt.

I made the photo on 12 March 2011 with the Canon EOS450D, 50mm/1.4 prime, and the following settings: 1/320s, f/4, ISO100, 80mm full-frame equivalent. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at as

    What comes to my mind are dreams, hopes, not about being forgotten (or not being). So glad you posted this. And your words were wonderful and got me to think. Love when that happens. 🙂

      Hi, Katie.

      Even if this piece of beautiful wall art is gone, a record of it remains somewhere. If not me, I’m sure someone else (in Munich) has a record of this contemplative piece. I’m positive that the idea and the feelings will always remain.

      I’m glad you liked my post. Thanks for reading and for your comment!

      Hi, Jen.

      Noooooo … 😦

      On the other hand, I have great memories of our photowalk that day this past March. Under grey skies, the light conditions weren’t the best, but we got to see and photograph a number of things in Isarvorstadt; besides, the Alter Südfriedhof was very interesting.

      Thanks for stopping by, and for the update!
