#538. Berlin – On the Streets. Bilder ohne Worte.
As the title reads, here are just a bunch of photographs from Berlin, with little else in the way of discussion :
My short week-end there saw a mixed bag of weather conditions that gave us all sorts of lighting conditions, which is great for photography. Mostly, though, is was super flat light, bordering on drab. Not what traveling togs dream of, but I rather think it suits the place well.
I’d visited the city previously for work, never for tourism. My impressions after this short tourist-blitz? Let’s say I now understand why people go to Paris for romance and to Berlin for photography workshops.
That is one city with a huge and varied amount of photographic opportunities (not to say there’s no room for romance, of course 😉 )
This being a very short stay, those photographs are from the more touristy areas. There is much, much more on offer in Berlin for serious photographers (including no less than 5 airports, derelict buildings, woodland, very interesting modern architecture …)
As I was traveling light and as age is making me more lazy every day, these are all made with a Sony A7rII and just one lens: the Zeiss Distagon 35mm f/1.4. Some photographs have been reframed, others are stitched. Ten years ago, who’d have thought a medium wide could have served as a short tele or a very wide angle. Oh, I love post-processing 😉
