I live right in the center of a medium-sized city and it feels like a vacation to me when I spend two or three days at my parents’ place. They live in the Stuttgart area, close enough to get downtown in a half hour but far enough to be surrounded by nature. Whenever I’m there, I go for endless walks and really enjoy the birds singing, I watch ducks and dragonflies at the creek (while the cows are watching me :-D). A couple of years ago, I left this small village because I wanted to live in the city so much. And I still like the city but sometimes I have to flee from the traffic, the noise, the dirt…nature is what refills my batteries!

In the last decade she has spent in the USA, Maliha has stayed at six different cities in five different states. Currently, Maliha is based in Denver, Colorado, and "Transient Living," a new series in the Lomography magazine, documents her experiences and the ways that she has come to call this city her home.</i>

And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down. My search lead to a few establishments that have contributed to making Denver what it is today. In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.
