a word a week challenge – sleep

When I got the news that – the weekly challenge was sleep – I looked through all my photos I thought. I wrote to Sue that I have rest this week, because of my 6000 photos (roughly) I don’t have one where something or somebody is sleeping.

Because I said my present keeps everybody alter *smile

She sent me a comment back and when I answered her .. I remember I have this. Taken during my visit in Berlin, one of the best cities in Europe. Berlin that totally took me by surprise – and we clicked from the first evening.

It was in 2011 – the trip was really booked for my birthday in 2010 – but my cancer came in the way, so we went in June the following year instead. All thanks to the hotel’s customer service and a nice girl by name Juliane. Have done a post about the hotel and the service they provided – world class; to walk some extra miles ….

This photo was taken while me and my friend walk over from our hotel to Alexander Platz to buy fresh fruit – we passed a little beautiful square and there he was … a very tired young man.

The track I have added here is one of the singles that is on the German music chart just now; “Bilder im Kopf”  and in English that means “Pictures in the head” – sings by Sido. How suitable wasn’t that. Please, klick on the media player below to listen to the track.

  1. I was going to say get yourself a pet because they like sleep ALL the time and provide many photo opportunities…BUT this one you tracked down through memory lane is absolutely priceless!!!!! A Winner! I love Berlin too. O’s schwester lives in Potsdam. Cheers my dear 🙂

    • Thanks … yes, Berlin is the city … and not expensive as I thought it should be.
      I know pets sleep all the time. Got your mail about the shop – looks fantastic .. and you’re nearly there. Amazing job. Hopefully one day I will open the door to it .. we never know.
      Good luck to you, Wendy!

  2. Aww, cute! I can’t believe out of 6000 you haven’t got one, but pretty sure I don’t have either. Tell you what- you lay down and pretend to be asleep and I’ll take your photo, then you can do the same for me? 🙂

  3. What a shot! Love the photo and so apt for the blog post. Sleep is so amazing when I can get it at night..

    • Thanks for …. comments so I remember my Berlin folder.
      Thanks a million for the reblogging, very kind of you … I have never been backpacking – but I have been falling to sleep on many strange places … It often happens during our management meetings – not so fun for my boss. *smile always boarded to death most of the time.

    • Thank you so much …. and thanks for stopping by and … commenting. Yes, I had totally forgotten to check my Berlin folder. I had two sleeping photos from Berlin, but one was of my friend … and I don’t post that personal photos. Thanks again for your kind comment.

    • Yes, I know …have to create a portfolio. I enjoy the challenges – great way to be aware of what photo I have on hand too. Tomorrow is going to be a big one .. have collected the whole of April.

    • Everybody with a pet .. has sleeping photos *smile …
      I had totally forgotten about this young man – and I found a photo in the folder … with me friend sleeping *smile

  4. You managed to find a great one!
