Potsdamer Platz - Sony Center


Creo que me gusta más esta panorámica que la que hice el año pasado. No tengo muy claro si esto se debe a un mejor ojo fotográfico.

I like this one better than this other one I took last year around this time. This is taken from the bar of the Cinemaxx on an exceedingly warm evening for October in Berlin. No surprise it was full of people.

Topographie des Terrors


After ten years in Berlin, I finally found the time to visit this exhibition. the silence is impressive, inside and outside. People walk from one stand to the other, from one picture to the next and, more often than not, you struggle to understand how all this could happen.


Because of the silence it was quite embarrasing to take this photo, as the sound of the camera was like thunder on my ears and I sort of expected everyone to turn round and look at me. But nobody did. Maybe just too deep on their thoughts.

Capitales


I took this one in New Zealand earlier this year. At the time I was wondering if this was the same all around the world or if the signs are customized. I was actually quite surprised to see that I have been to most of these places, which reminds of a very old post.

Lying on graffities



I saw this lady when I was walking along the northern side of the channel, but I could not figure out how to frame her into a photo without being too intrusive. I went to the opposite side and the photo was just there waiting to be taken. As an added bonus, she started reading a book.

Texting


I would have actually preferred her to be reading a book instead of texting something on her mobile. It would have been a slightly better fit for the Serenity series.
