The World Cup has kicked off in Russia. Soccer is the national sport of Germany, and 80 Million head coaches are trying to figure out the best starting lineup for the first match of the defending World Champion on Sunday versus Mexico.
As I write this I’m sitting on my couch and watch the match of tournament favorite France playing the Soccaroos from Australia. Amazingly, they are tied at 1:1 going into the last 15 minutes.
I enjoy the downtime after a rough week in the office, made worse by some serious IT issues with my work laptop. Working privately on Mac infrastructure, I’m always amazed by the low cost / low quality equipment they give us to work with 10 hours a day. Ridiculous.
These soccer street photos I took when visiting the Euro 2016 semifinal match between France and Germany in Toulouse. Camera was the PEN-F and the mZuiko 14-150mm F/4-5.6 I used as travel all-purpose lens back then, now replaced with the 12-100 F/4.
Wish you a great weekend, and if you are soccer fan, a great start into the World Cup. May the best teams win….
Will catch up with comments and everybody’s blogs on the weekend!
