they call it progress but it’s just movement

the title of this post is (slightly adapted) from the song ‘just movement’ by robert delong (click,hear)

helau!

DSC00758it’s carnival season and ‘helau!’ is the narrenruf in one of the capitals of carnival in germany – düsseldorf (as opposed to ‘alaaf’ in the even bigger capital of carnival – cologne). this is a window of the haus des karnevals in düsseldorf’s old town. i found it surprisingly austere.

you typically don’t get to notice  anything carnivalistic over here in berlin. that’s actually quite okay, though :)

checkpoint charlie

checkpoint charlie

today is the 25th anniversary of the fall of the berlin wall. this picture was made a few weeks ago at the former grenzübergang checkpoint charlie in friedrichstrasse then forming the border between the (eastern) mitte and (western) kreuzberg.

gas tanks

gas tanks

biogas tanks to be more precise. maybe a bit too much drama going on here with the blown out highlights but i liked the delicate curve of the left tank against the white sky a lot that way. i hope you can see it at all… if not your brain might fill in the missing part swiftly and you will at least think that you can see it.

i made this picture in the niederrhein area. it is effectively sooc, using the grainy filter of the e-p5 that sometimes can’t be beaten (at least not by me). i often take it as a suggestion but then do my own processing but sometimes i do accept.
