berlin street art

the third installment in this very loose series of longer posts on street art in berlin. but one literally cannot pass a street in berlin without seeing something that could be called art. this is a collection of stuff that i like and everything shown here is within a friendly 10 minute walking distance from home.

if you are interested in who the artists are – i’m sorry, i can’t help you there. some stuff is obviously by soon (already featured here and here), artikel and robi the dog but i don’t know the other artists by name. maybe andBerlin can jump to the rescue again ;)

on a more technical note: the pictures that don’t have full featured exif data (in case you should even bother) have been shot with the om zuiko 100mm lens.

soon again

this mildly dystopian vision of berlin’s future was shot on a recent stroll through friedrichshain again. this is one of the first pictures taken with the panasonic wide angle conversion lens gwc-1 attached to the lumix 14mm pancake. when i got the 14mm on ebay as a de-kitted lens i had the converter in mind already. the converter seems to be quite scarce, though. i was lucky and got a used one from amazon warehouse deals very quickly (as opposed to four to five weeks delivery time for a new one)  and i’m very happy with it.

as you might know my first serious attempts at photography happened to happen with the great panasonic lx-3 and that had a 24mm equivalent lens. i really did miss the wide angle at first with my e-pl1 but then i got over it. at least i thought i did. now with the gwc-1 the good old wide feeling is back and i’m very happy with the converter.

soon i will post a few more images and a short assessment of the gwc-1.
