This is the outer shell of one of Krefeld’s home improvement stores. I am wondering why they all, like Home Depot, have orange as a theme color. The story of this shot?
I was approached by an employee (after beeing stared at by customers for a while) asking me if he could help. No, I am fine, I am just taking shots of the wall nothing more, and the carts and the hinges of some doors. No, forbidden, need approval of Mr. V. O.k.

I asked him who he was, somebody from the company? No, just a concerned citizen. He added: "I could arrest you for taking shots – people can arrest people if …" "a crime is happening or had just happened," I added. So, what’s the crime?

You have purchased a new banner sign to advertise your business or event and now are wondering about the best way to install it. Hanging a banner should not be a difficult task.
