Photographer's Note

Do you know what the colors of German flag are?
It is a tricky question

It is obviously black red and
gold.
I remember it was a surprise to me and I discovered that only because I was really interested in the culture of this country. For quite a long time I thought that the third color was yellow.

This archival photo was taken in 2006. From 9 June to 9 July 2006 Germany hosted the FIFA World Cup. I remember I took this photo after a German victory. Judged by the date of the photo (30 June 2006) this must have been after the game with Argentina. It was won by Germany hence the joy. Unfortunately, the German team has lost the next game with Italy but still ended up on the third place which is quite high.

I have no interest in football at all, but people were so enthusiastic partying all over the town that I grabbed my camera and took some photos.
The partially bright background was due to the evening sunlight on some parts of the buildings.

To see how Italians have celebrated after winning the World Cup few days later have a look at THIS PHOTO by Luciano.
