Gauting Summer Pool
World in reflection | Waiting for the summer
2020 has been a turbulent year. But also a quiet year for some. Like swimming pools and lakes, which in Summer usually are heavily frequented otherwise. But it’s also a chance for them to be calm finally. Their water is more clear, more peaceful.
In turn, they give trees, birds, houses, and us a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to stop and reflect. To see the world both at its most chaotic and most serene. And to see ourselves.
