During the yearly Festival of Lights in Berlin it is not so easy to find a good spot. The composition should be appealing, not too many people should cross the photo and it would better be something which wasn’t photographed a thousand times before.
Well, I’m certainly not the first in Berlin who takes a shot of the Brandenburg Gate (Brandenburger Tor) together with the sign for the Pariser Platz. But that evening I liked that combination so much that I shot a complete series of the illuminations from there.
In this first photo of the series the Brandenburg Gate is littered with red roses. This theme seemed to be the favourite for most women (including Daria) and I guess it is easy to get the link to Paris.
