Such a lovely couple

Captured two years ago in the Olympiapark (Olympic Park) on top of the Olympic Hill. The man-made hill towers for 60 meters and provides a brilliant view over the city on clear days. Originally it was a dump for the debris of destroyed buildings after the war. Today it is a green hill which is also used for sledging and other activities in winter.

In the background you can see the Olympic Stadium from 1972 and the Olympic Village (on the far right, partly coverted by the watermark). The Olympic Village has a sad history as it was the place where Israeli athlets where attacked by eight members of Palestinian terror organisation “Black September” during the games.

They were such a pretty couple back in the 80s or early 90s when this advertising display was installed in Munich’s Westpark. But being subjected to the elements for over 20 years sure leaves its marks. Now the suffer from bleaching, scratches, graffiti and eczema. But their teeth are still shining in best pearly-white. Wrigley’s Spearmint Gum must have done a great job.
