We visited an old ice factory that’s quite popular among photographers as it offers a good view on the skyline while giving a certain industrial touch. It’s a wonderful HDR playground as the light falls through different holes in the walls, and gives you a lot of pleasure in the processing. For the graffiti artists it’s a great playground too, giving us photographers beautiful objectives.
In the background you see the St Nicholas Cathedral (Kostel svatého Mikuláše) and the big street is called Karmelitská. But if you’ve ever been in Prague, you know how busy that street is. It took something like 15 minutes of waiting to get this shot without cars/ trams/ tourist groups crossing the scene.
The World Time Clock on Alexanderplatz in Berlin is for me one of the most beautiful remains of the former GDR. It symbolizes how close the places on the world are. And if you take a long enough exposure, you get a feeling that it’s possible to travel a bit through time and space.
Taking pictures of a thunderstorm has its own charm. Especially while standing on a balcony on the 19th floor, enjoying one of the best views over the Berlin skyline. It was more of a coincidence than planned. When the rain became a thunderstorm, I thought for a second if I really want to stand up here on the balcony and keep shooting. But somehow my brain could not convince my heart to go back inside.
Mallorca is often called the 17th federal state here in Germany and in times like these, there is nothing you want more than lying on the beach. It has 36°C here in Berlin. Not complaining about the heat, but it is definitely more pleasant to enjoy the sun outside of the city.
