Projekt 52 Week 10: Architecture

The topic of week 10 in Sari’s photo Projekt 52:


Well, Pfaffenhofen doesn’t have that many eye-catching modern architecture, the main square (which has some nice old-style buildings, including the town hall) are a big construction site right now, and I didn’t want to take some photos from the archive such as the Neue Messe Stuttgart (whose parking garage I had used for a picture riddle) or the new shopping mall in Heilbronn which was almost finished last Christmas.

So I chose these two pictures:

The “House of Meeting” at the western end of the main square in Pfaffenhofen – with library, gallery, tourist office and music school.

World Aids Day

World Aids Day Today is World Aids Day… since I didn’t have much time to write a lot about it myself, I’ll just quickly link to

  • weltaidstag.eu and welt-aids-tag.de as well as the English Wikipedia article about Aids;
  • other bloggers’ posts (German): Goggiblog, JUST4FUN #1 and #2, 49suns, Das blonde Alien;
  • and as a special treat, the song “Say It’s Not True” by Queen + Paul Rodgers which can be downloaded for free here (specifying your name and e-mail address for the Q+PR mailing list) – in a brand new studio version, after the song had been played live 4 years ago at the Nelson Mandela 46664 concert. Its video is supposed to be published today as well.

Aids – yes, it still exists…

Welt-Aids-Tag Saturday after next, December 1, is World Aids Day – an important and serios matter (Aids, not just that one day). “There is no cure for Aids. And every year, three million people are dying worldwide from the conequences of Aids, 40 million are HIV infected. And the number of new infections is rising again here, too, for several years.” (quote from www.welt-aids-tag.de, translated)

World AIDS Day, observed December 1 each year, is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection. It has been taken up by governments, international organizations and charities around the world. Its symbol is the red ribbon, which also has got its place in the header of my blog now. (mostly from Wikipedia)

In Great Britain, there’s a campaign named G.I.Jonny “to inform and protect” which offers, besides information, “real stories” from six young people to listen to, and you can create your own (virtual) action figure, which might e.g. look like mine:
