The concentrated light of a street kitchen reminds me of a very special movie:
|Niels Larsen, Vienna, December 2015.|
The scene comes from Der Himmel über Berlin (Wings of Desire) by Wim Wenders, in which the protagonist Gabriel is an angel, who longs to become a human. Humans have senses, they see colors, they sense warmth, and Peter Falk plays himself, a former angel, who senses Gabriel's (invisible to humans) presence and tells him, what he is missing. There is such a thing as drawing for instance; the sheer physical joy of drawing a line:
"You pick a pencil
and you make a dark line
then you make a light line
and together it is a good line"
