It’s amazing what gets discovered after going the wrong way.
I head straight for a full city-block before realizing my error, that I should’ve turned right about 5 minutes ago. I bow my head, and release a deep breath in frustration. I raise my head to the sky, when I catch sight of something out of the corner of my eye.
What’s that across the street?
I have to reach my destination which I know isn’t far.
But I am coming back here to get the shot.

As part of the Metropolink urban art festival in the summer of 2016, the artist duo herakut was invited to create a wall mural in Heidelberg. As this beautiful work also highlights, their message has consistently been about challenging our preconceptions and assumptions. For more about the making, Montana Cans writes about this work here.
“Wenn wir uns von Äusserlichkeiten abschrecken lassen, verpassen wir womöglich das Wertvolle darunter.”
(If we let outer appearances scare us, we might miss out on great beauty inside.)
The United Nations has assigned March 21 as the International Day for the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination. The European Action Week Against Racism in 2017 takes place 18 to 26 March.
I previously wrote about herakut’s art on a visit to Lutherstadt Wittenberg.
I made the photos above on 15 March 2017 with a Canon EOS6D mark1. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-9tN.
