THE QUEEN IS GONE BUT SHE IS NOT FORGOTTEN
Over the last 15 years, my girlfriend and I had built up a nice relationship to Eveline, the owner of a health food store at the Carlsplatz in Duesseldorf. From her shop windows, Eveline had the best view of the market square. She knew every seller and buyer, the newest rumours and gossip. And she had been known by everybody, made a short talk with everybody and gave everybody a health hint or life wisdom for free. That all made her to the uncrowned Queen of the Carlsplatz. But due to health problems, Eveline had now to abandon her shop. As I stopped fortuitous in front of the shop last week the door was open and an estate agent with a few interested tenants visited the spaces. I took the chance and made a few remembrance photos with my CM1 camera phone. And combine the results with some extremely rare shots I made from Queen Eveline between one of her audiences. Rare because Eveline did not like to be photographed. And which or who fall from the Queen’s grace she could be beheaded. So it looks like she really loved me cause until now I have my head between my shoulders.
