where am i?

where am i?

since i am on holiday at the moment i thought i could auto-post this little riddle. and no, i am not on vacation behind the shelves at the office. this picture should only serve as a hint at my current whereabouts. and here is one more: it’s neither russia nor france.

i’m looking forward to your guesses solutions in the comment section :)

another one from beelitz heilstätten.

i made this with the 26mm f1.4 toy lens by slr magic. this very toy lens was the topic of my first post here on .documenting.the.obvious about 550 posts ago. i took the lens with me because i hoped the swirly bokeh could come in handy in such an abandoned setting, and it did. otherwise i haven’t used it very much since that first blog post…

i’m not really sure what i like in this picture but i definitely like it. it’s probably the reduced palette with that exposed spot of red and all these nice varieties of green. it could of course be the content. the traffic sign looks a little bit lost and pointless in all the landscape (it wasn’t of course in reality). probably it’s a combination of both. that’s how it is supposed to work, right?

it’s a really unusual rainy summer in berlin. we do have great warm and sunny weather but we also have really impressive showers quite often. but then again – photo opportunities, yay!

this is the siegessäule (victory column) in berlin tiergarten. i’ve featured it from its top quite a while ago already here.
