As you’ve noticed, there have been a couple of days without photos, and I owe you an explanation for that. This blog was over the last months a great way for myself to get feedback about my photography and develop my skills. But know I feel that I have to make the next step. Therefore I’m currently busy reconstructing the website, to offer you even better photos and much better content apart from that. Stay tuned and feel free to follow me on Twitter to stay up to date when the new site is launching!
To the photo: January 2013 wasn’t the best month for outdoor photography so far. It was grey and sad, I never saw a bit of sun until last Friday. Then immediately I took my cam and went to the lake (it seemed like everybody with a camera had the same idea). Luckily the lake was still a bit frozen, so it provided a very nice reflection of the sun.
Sometimes I wonder how it would be to live in one of those houses close to the lake. I mean I am happy with our place, we just have to walk 5 minutes and we’re on the lake as well. But waking up in the morning and seeing the water? Must be awesome.
A photo my girlfriend did and I think it’s great. I like how the fence is in line with the horizon and the soft colors of the sunset. It’s taken on the southern end of the Greenwich Promenade in Tegel, Berlin. A place which is only two minutes away from our home.
Probably the most famous construction in my part of Berlin, the “Port Bridge of Tegel” how it’s called oficially. However, nobody is calling the bridge like that. It’s simply Sechserbrücke, a name that reaches back to times where you had to pay 5 Pfennig, called “Sechser”, to cross the river.
Tegel, the place where I grew up and the place where I currently live. When people come to visit me, almost always I hear them say “You really still live in Berlin? I thought it would be much more chaotic in such a big city.” Well yeah, it is. But luckily there are parts which are quite relaxed. And Tegel is one of them. And that what makes Berlin so awesome. It’s a huge city with all advantages and disadvantages. But still there are so many green areas that make you forget you’re in one of the biggest towns of Europe.
