welcome to retrograd

as the tradition of this blog has it here are some of my favourite pictures from 2017.

this time they come from a variety of places like zürich, paris, den haag, cologne, texel, munich, venice, kassel, duisburg and last and definitely not least hong kong. but most of them are of course from good old berlin. i hope you like what you see! (cont’d below)

a happy new year to all of you friendly followers, following friends and likable likers. it was a pleasure having you!

to a good 2018!

ps: i pondered adding a new twist to this retrospective and i thought i’d share some of my favourite songs that i’ve discovered during the last year with you. i reckoned a spotify playlist might reach at least some of the readers here. it should even work without a spotify account but then you have to endure some advertising between the songs.

have fun!

berliner traufhöhe

berlin mitte, 2017

*traufhöhe is basically the height of the eaves of a house (eaves’ height). for berlin there was (and in certain areas it still is in effect) a defined maximum of 22 meters. if you wanted to build a house higher than that, it got more complicated (but it was not impossible of course). there’s a nice english blog post which gets a little bit further into detail here.
