#582. Un-destination photography in Aigues-Mortes, France

#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
