No one can escape the soccer world cup mania these days, especially not us, who live in a city were games will be held. We are already quite exhausted from the marketing and the construction work around us, but we could not resist to post this goal that is put up about one kilometer of our apartment. In winter we shot the net with just a little hole in it and when we came back today, we saw that it had grown pretty large in the meantime. So this is the best approach we could come up with in making the shots identical without cropping too much space around the hole in the second picture.
I really like the simple ideas the best ;)
I reckon you should go back and take more shots of it at in august ;) JD @ 2006-May-28 01:09
I wish I was there for the cups, I'm getting amped for it. In the second photograph, somewhat I like the daylight drop on top of the net rope. It's a very unique shot against the green field. If you can get some players behind later on, it can be sweeter, though be careful ;-). Cheers. Emré @ 2006-May-28 03:10
Nice simple concept, and the end result is really good. Well done. Heath @ 2006-May-28 03:27
Excellent. Great idea and perfect execution. Cheers. Brent Vermilyea @ 2006-May-28 08:13
Glatter Durchschu?? in die Zukunft. Das Fu??balltor als Zeitmaschine.
Tolle Idee. grapf @ 2006-May-28 09:05
Neat idea to keep an occasional record of things developing. As with this, changes are often unseen and, so, go unnoticed. AG @ 2006-May-28 10:02
WOW! This is really nice especially the one at the bottom. Now I've learnt something from you on how to take these types of shots. Well done. Jide Alakija @ 2006-May-28 11:10
Hehe :-) This is very cool! I totally love the idea and very well executed! Great job guys! Kris @ 2006-May-28 11:11
We are excited about it here too, even tens of thousands of kilometres away. Australia has made it for only the 3rd time in history. I think your shots are a perfect lead-in. ROB @ 2006-May-28 11:12
To me this is just the most lyrical way of showing the idea of time passing.. And so simple. I love it. fotojo @ 2006-May-28 11:41
Klasse Idee, klasse umgesetzt. Das Bild ist sehr reduziert ohne abstrakt zu sein und lässt trotzdem sehr viel Interpretationsspielraum... holger @ 2006-May-28 14:17
Ich liebe Fotos, die eine eigene Geschichte erzählen, toll umgesetzt. Holger @ 2006-May-28 15:13
Lovely series... I too like the second the best... It didn't dawn on me that you're living in the region of next month's World Cup. I feel for you. Here it's only 2006 and everywhere you turn you see evidence of the preparations for the 2010 Olympics that will be here. That, too, will be madness. ;) christine @ 2006-May-28 18:27
I recognize that field, seen a post with that here before hehe. I think I have photos like that too, taken during different seasons. it's interesting to see how the whole in the net grew though, takes the place off focus a bit, hehe. take one this autumn too :D Minna @ 2006-May-28 19:54
Sehr gut Idee, auch thematisch aktuell. Nur befürchte ich, dass es in den nächsten Wochen immer mehr Fu??ball-Bilder in der Photoblog-Comm. geben wird.
Mir gefällt das Photo trotzdem :-) Homajon @ 2006-May-28 20:07
Also ich finde das ZWeite grandios.....ich denke es wäre vielleicht wirksamer alleine gewesen. Gerade in dieser Zeit wo alle dem ersten Anpfiff entgegenfiebern....:) Trotzdem - die Sommer/Winter Variante hat auch so einiges....:) Jens @ 2006-May-28 20:22
