OWPC – Dragon – It Just Can’t Win

So the dragon always has to play the underdog. I know of no exception to this rule. Good must triumph over evil, so the devilish dragon (poor dear) won’t ever stand a chance. Neither against a saint nor a knight in shining armour. In my city I know three dragon-slayers, one of them dragon-slayer-drachentoeter-reliefin Mönckebergstraße:

OWPC: Curtain – Türgardinen in Tönning

3-eichhoernchenThe velvet stage curtain has just opened. The squirrel children are asking their mother to tell them all about the terrible Gruffalo (who’s called Grüffelo in German – surprise, surprise! 🙂 ).

Aha, oho – it’s the Gruffalo himself now. Gruffalo on stage

Is anyone here afraid of him? Young children usually aren’t. He’s a single father who raises his little daughter, the Gruffalo Child, in the Dark Wood. And a very brave girl she is – afraid of nothing and no-one. So much for stage curtains.

I meant to show you some lace-curtains from Tönning doors. Tönning (or Tønning in Danish) is a picturesque little town near the North Sea coast, not too far away from Denmark. Worth a visit or two. It used to be Danish and played an important part during Napoleon’s Continental Blockade.

One Word Photo Challenge: Bubbles

Hubble, Bubble, Toil & Trouble…

I haven’t the slightest why this tiny toy vehicle used to be called a bubble in English – perhaps someone can enlighten me?

Kabinenroller_bubble_carI understand it goes for both, the Messerschmitt Kabinenroller and the BMW Isetta, although the only feature they shared was their tinyness combined with an unusual entrance – the latter with two different approaches.

Anyway, I already used the toy photo for a Thursday Doors entry recently.

You doubt a full-sized human being could possibly have fitted in? Well, yes. This is the proof: Kabinenroller


Admittedly, a giant like Dirk Nowitzki (2.13 m!) might have had problems with this peculiar contraption. It was very popular, though, partly because it was affordable, could be driven by bikers and also because it looked so cute.  When watching the opening scene of Buster (based on the Great Train Robbery), it felt very nostalgic to spot one of these witnesses of the (well, my…) past.

This is my entry for Jennifer’s one word photo challenge OWPC. Thank you for stopping by! 🙂
