For this week’s photo session, I decided to change the location since Switzerland has so many different beautiful places to discover than just my home town Zurich. So, we travelled to the heart of Switzerland and the city which represents that wonderful country perfectly – Lucerne. If I had to paint a picture which shows the most unique sights of Switzerland, it would probably look like Lucerne.
Not only that it is in the heart of Switzerland but it also has everything what Switzerland stands for. It’s the combination of a historic old town with its ancient buildings and houses, the famous “Kappelbrücke” which is a tourist magnet, the lively side across the river with a vibrant life and modern buildings such as the KKL. And there is the beautiful lake with its wonderful mountains all around which seems very close. Well, they really are, indeed. To me, all that different kinds of sights and natural phenomenon combined in such a tiny place, it’s like drawing a picture of your ideal city to live in, isn’t it?
And while being in that city and standing there surrounded by all the beauty, it somehow reminded me to the movie “The Tourist” (2010) starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie in Venice. I know Lucerne is not Venice, where the film was produced, but it looked alike. And probably it has almost the same amount of real tourist from all over the world. Therefore, I got inspired by the movie and vibes of the city and decided to dress up like in a stylish and classy way with a dark blue suit and a black bow-tie. And well, the real tourists looked at me in a strange manner posing suited up in front of the sights. It was fun, though.
Take care & write you soon…
