When I look back at this now, I can’t believe we had been in Copenhagen and were on our way back and we popped into Kaltenkirchen just to see a friend, Andreas, and I was just filming on the offchance as I really wasn’t used to filming back then so it simply hadn’t been entering my head. I had very little time on my memory card back then anyway. I just had no idea that there could be any interest in these walkabout films.

It’s interesting that back in 2006 when most people still hadn’t heard of YT, getting a camera out and filming anything was something bound to evoke comment, as it did from these kids, who tried to provoke me by saying it was forbidden to photograph the town’s fountain. I kidded them back saying that “verboten” is a word much beloved of Germans, which is actually not necessarily the case, but since they provoked first, I reckoned I was not too mean to be trolling them a bit.
