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 :)
only temporarily for the holidays of course. see you all on the other side and thanks for all your friendly support of my little site. i sincerely appreciate that!
this is the door of a flower shop at prenzlauer allee, berlin.
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…

still hot and humid in berlin. that’s how it was the other day when i found this little guy in quite intriguing light.
i’d do it…
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.
apparently i’m a sucker for windows and trees and/but not really good with titles so i simply reuse one from last year. this photo was made a few weeks ago on a visit to beelitz heilstätten.
it’s packed. found in lichtenberg, berlin.
i found this nice paper radio under some interesting lighting conditions in kreuzberg, too. about 30 minutes later it was gone (i.e. removed)…
to the spreewaldbad, kreuzberg, berlin.
a strong shadow, some nice colours and a good shot of decay was not too much to ask for in kreuzberg the other day.
man at work on a rose farm at the border between germany and the netherlands. i liked the layers in this scenery a lot and luckily i had the 40-150mm at hand so i could utilise the optical compression that the lens delivers at the long end.
a temporary water pipe in berlin charlottenburg. the building in the background is the waldorf astoria at zoologischer garten.
not really. in fact it looks like he has already come to terms with his situation… found on the frankfurter allee in friedrichshain.
a berlin u-bahn on its way to bülowstrasse. shot in the quite new gleisdreieckpark.
and striped. an old station clock at ostkreuz, friedrichshain. soon to be demolished, too.
that’s obviously a colours photo. found in berlin friedrichshain.
made visible by the rain.
i took this picture in boxhagener strasse, friedrichshain after one of the heavy rain showers this week.
or at least helpful in berlin these days…
on the bus 245 on my way to foto meyer to return the rented m.zuiko 12-40mm with which this picture was made. a great lens, in every respect.
btw. good bye, oranje. it would have been great.
