Blue Port


As I reported before, Hamburg people are crazy about their harbour. Now, they have another reason to celebrate parties: The days of the bike races, "Cyclassics" and, during the same weekend, the Cruize Days. And at night, there is a blue light installation named "Blue Port", along with the passing of cruize ships and fireworks. The metro waggons were sardine tins, stuffed with people,  everyone were on their feet and walked along the promenade. Here are the lights and sounds of the place.



Later, when the rush had died down, people enjoyed the view of all these blue lights. It was a miraculous atmosphere, and although I had expected to find the leftovers of booze catastrophes, there was quietude and almost adoration.
