Wouldn’t it be awesome if one could paint an image like this?
I captured the underlying image in Amsterdam and stumbled upon it today while I was cleaning up my files. Always nice to go back to these older images and to play around with them.

Happy days.

Perfect Cloud

Perfect Cloud

I left Berlin for the weekend and drove back home. We had beautiful weather. Sunshine and very mild temperatures at our lake. I sat on the terrace and watched the clouds passing by. While I was watching I asked myself how would a perfect cloud look like? I sat there for quite a while and captured this small, cool looking, perfect cloud. Now I am back in Berlin… and I can still see it passing by.

Happy and sunny days!

Berlin Blog

My time in Berlin has been extended to December 2018.

This is exciting and great news!

To avoid a mix of documentary and landscape photography in this blog, I decided to set up an additional blog.

  • it is focused on Berlin only
  • travel information, top sights and photography spots, information, recommendations, related images and videos will be the main categories of the additional blog
  • it will be in English
  • it will provide an “outside” (my) view of visited locations and places of Berlin.

If you like to follow me on my walks in awesome Berlin, hop over to
http://streetsofberlincity.wordpress.com.

The blog starts as of today and will be updated on a regular basis. I will still post here… but these posts will cover photography and no insides about Berlin.

See you there. Happy and sunny days. Reinhold

Jimi Hendrix

Tempodrom: founded by Irene Moessinger, it opened in 1980 next to the Berlin Wall on the west side of Potsdamer Platz, housed in a large circus tent. After several changes of location it is now housed in a permanent building in the Kreuzberg neighborhood.

That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.

Today I feel a little bit homesick… I miss my lake, my woodlands, my moors and my seas. There is only one way to cure that. I will pack my gear and hit the streets of Berlin. Happy days! Reinhold
