a backyard in berlin mitte, 2017
three different things, connected by colour and location – and chance.
berlin, friedrichshain, 2016
only the shadow of a bike at ostkreuz, berlin friedrichshain.
a yellow shot with bikes from amsterdam.
a bike in blue in a closed shop in maastricht in limburg in the netherlands. this picture might conclude the little detour from berlin to the netherlands for some time now.
0815 (null acht fünfzehn) is a german expression for something that is just nothing special.
that’s obviously a colours photo. found in berlin friedrichshain.
some bikes in berlin from last weekend. the first and the last one have been made from within the s-bahn and the second one sports almost the same icon for marking a bike lane.
who would have thought of that… after red and blue now green. hah, very original. but at least i have two greens for you… and i’ve sprinkled a little hipster developer over the picture to get that look.
this is a simson s50 (or maybe s51 for that matter), a motorcycle made in suhl, thuringia, gdr in the last half of the 70s. simson is the same company that also brought us the famous “schwalbe” scooters and the simson duo.
found in friedrichshain, berlin, former capital of the former gdr. sometimes it still puts your finger on it.
a motorcycle in da hood…
shot during the reviewing period of and with the sony a99 a while ago.
seen right before the polizeiwache in friedrichstrasse, kreuzberg. the corporate colour of the police in germany has been green for quite a long time and is now being gradually changed to dark blue (which makes them look a bit like train conductors and firemen who traditionally wear blue, too). this car sports the “original” colour and the bicycle might or might not be somehow associated with the police (probably not).
shot with the wonderful om zuiko 50mm at most probably f2.8.
if they give you ruled park paths, ride the other way
shot while visiting documenta 13 in the karlsaue park in kassel this summer. it was not really as lonely as it appears here ;)
it might get a bit rough, though. shot with the 20mm lumix in wedding again.
