Well, I remain at the border of the fields. These signg are more for people moving far into teh field with the complete family to take a picture but step on the flowers and bring possibly diseases into the bulbs

As a local I guess you knew you had to keep out of the fields

@Fred_S - so you are now taking your life in your hands by encroaching on the forbidden flower fields. Much appreciated, but really you shouldn't - it's not necessary.
See above Joe

Following on from Joe's selective comments Days 8 to 15, here are more for Days 16 to 23.

Day 17:
@Phil Wood - what a photo. Well spotted and snapped. Looks like a pretty serious cheese spread they're buying from.

Day 19:
@Phil Wood - these look like a bit of cheerful fun in an otherwise rather dreary looking shopping mall. Originally created by the famous Jeff Koons (and sold at auction for $60m!!!), but I think these must be copies/homages?

Day 21:
@Phil Wood - congrats on your fine acquisition. Lovely shot with it, and now you have the benefit of being able to work out aerobically when you take it out with you.

Day 23:
@Phil Wood - rather bizarre seeing these apparently mechanised giant lips deployed amongst the crowd. Presumably they are meant to be seen from the other side, without all those springs and levers?


17: The cheese stall was at our local Easter market. I was lucky with my timing, if I had arrived 30 minutes later the black curtain would not have been there (the sun it was protecting the cheese from had moved from the direct line).

19: The 'art' is pure rip-off, a British artist, no mention of Koons that I saw.

21: I have been advised to do some weight work by my fitness fanatic sister - this seems a reasonable compromise to me.

23: I was indeed shooting from behind the lips - they looked so much better than when viewed from the front with bright sun behind.

Thank you Joe, much appreciated.

@Robbie - that brickwork looks so unstable I'm surprised it could still be used as a weir.

Im not sure but I think it is not in function anymore. The doors of the weir are rotten as well. The biggest danger in this region is an extreme high tide from the Northern Sea. Because of dredging the rivers (Weser, Lesum and Wmme) so much the tidal goes up more than 60 kilometres into the hinterlands. Now there is a big weir in the river Lesum so if necessary it will be locked there and the pictured weir is no longer needed.
