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.

victory is mine

i visited siegessäule for the first time the other day. after several years of living in berlin i thought it was time for it.  it was quite windy up there and unfortunately no simpson’s sky* over berlin but  of course i can try again in a few years …

victory herself (quite impressive)
