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”

Sepia Spell -Stairway to Heaven

    Okay, okay… I admit, this is n o t the actual stairway to heaven, b u t in my mind it´s pretty close to it 😉 As it is, these steps are leading up to the second floor of the Old National Gallery outside the building. The Old National Gallery is situated onContinue reading “Sepia Spell -Stairway to Heaven”

Sepia Spell: The Cathedral

    As promised, I´m showing you this time the Berlin Cathedral (short for: Evangelical Supreme Parish and Collegiate Church) as it can be seen from the Friedrichs Bridge.

Sepia Spell – Friedrichs Bridge

The Friedrichs Bridge is one of my favourite bridges in Berlin. It has been built in 1703 and restored in the last years and serves now solely as a pedestrian bridge in Berlin Mitte. It crosses the Spree and connects the mainland to the Museum Island – one of my favourite places in Berlin 🙂Continue reading “Sepia Spell – Friedrichs Bridge”

Sepia Spell – Flight of Stairs

  This is one of the four entrances to the park I´ve introduced you to last week. The Koernerpark is situated below street level, so you have to walk down these beautiful flight of stairs to get to the garden area. Somehow this does always make me feel like a movie star 😉   Also,Continue reading “Sepia Spell – Flight of Stairs”

Sepia Spell – Wedding Bells

  I stumbled over this lovely scene while I was enjoying a walk through one of my favourite parks here in Berlin, the Körnerpark. It´s a very small park compared to many others but it has been beautifully designed (around 1912-1916) and reminds me everytime of one place or another in northern Italy. It´s situatedContinue reading “Sepia Spell – Wedding Bells”
