DÜSSELDORF - ITS SPRING


DÜSSELDORF


“We have gone from the Spring to the Summer” says Petra on the front desk as I check in late on a Wednesday evening.

Everywhere is scrubbed clean by sunlight, a dusty white.

Dust from construction because everywhere there is evidence of industry and construction.

The train lines cross the city, mechanical-electrical cables overhead are green rusted, substantiation of great engineering – a character of this land

Sitting on the dusty kerb I make this drawing



Close by the gleaming white office in which we are working is a line of new apartments each one with its distinctive colours and shape. Sitting on the kerb I make this drawing and then walk back to the office for the taxi to the airport.

We have a lovely meal  - italienisch
