A Splash Of Red

  In this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge Patti invites us to to a photo scavenger hunt to find things that are red. She says – and I couldn’t agree more – that: “Sometimes in the middle of winter, the world is reduced to stark shades of black and white.  This is the time when my eyes areContinue reading “A Splash Of Red”

Please Hold The Line

  This week Tina asked us to share some of the leading lines we’ve captured for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge! Those of you who’ve been here around for some time, know that I’m a sucker for long views in photography, up to a point where I begin to ask myself if my pics don’t startContinue reading “Please Hold The Line”

A New Challenge

  First: Wishing you all a very Happy and Creative New Year!!!   I’m usually not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions – since they never seem to work anyway! – but this year I made one tiny one, and that is to allow myself more time for photography, and to make an effort toContinue reading “A New Challenge”

Jellyfish Galore

  As promised, here are more photos from my recent trip to the Berlin Aquarium. Like before – because I failed to make a note of which fish etc I was busy taking pictures of – you can feel free to add information about the creatures on display here, if you´re so inclined. 🙂  Continue reading “Jellyfish Galore”

Into the Blue

  I´ve been to the Berlin Aquarium this week and thought I´d share with you some of the photos I made there. But because I made quite a lot of photos, and because I don´t want to overwhelm you with all of them at once, I´m going to split these into several posts. 😉 IContinue reading “Into the Blue”

Train Stations of Berlin: Hermannplatz

  Here comes the second installment of my new blog series – train stations of Berlin! (Click here for the first one.) Hermannplatz is one of the busiest train stations in Berlin. It serves as an interchange between two service lines (U7 and U8) and was opened in 1926. The station´s architects were Alfred GrenanderContinue reading “Train Stations of Berlin: Hermannplatz”

Heidelberger Platz

  I´m planning a new series for my blog: train stations of Berlin! There are many, as you will see, beautifully restored train stations that look very different from the modern ones, giving us a sense of what it felt like to enter the train over a hundred years ago. Today, I´m showing you photographsContinue reading “Heidelberger Platz”

The Shed

    I made this photograph last summer when I was on one of my many wanderings on the Tempelhofer Feld, the former airport right in the middle of Berlin. You can find all kind of structures still in place, between the bushes and the trees.  This shed seemed deserted and it was in factContinue reading “The Shed”

A Day at the Zoo – part 2

Are you ready to continue our walk through the Berlin Zoo? 😉 Then let´s begin! After having strolled through the monkey´s house, I headed straight to that part of the Zoo that holds many of my very favorite animals. One of them are seals of all kinds. I can never stop admiring their streamlined eleganceContinue reading “A Day at the Zoo – part 2”

A Day at the Zoo – part 1

  Now that the days are getting brighter and longer, I´m up again for wandering around. At the end of March we had very nice and warm weather (not so much now – it´s like winter has come back to show us that he´s not a sissy), and as I own an annual ticket forContinue reading “A Day at the Zoo – part 1”
