Harbour Sunset

In 1998, I was in love with a woman from Hamburg. While I was travelling in Asia, she sent me a postcard of the Hamburg harbour, and all I could think was, “why the hell would anyone print that on a postcard?”

She said she thought it was beautiful, and I just didn’t get it – that industrial skyline of the container terminal cranes? Beautiful?

I get it now.
