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.
When the sun sets in Berlin shadow people are all over the place. Yesterday evening I walked to the Potsdamer Platz (#1 and 2) and then to the Brandenburger Tor (#3 and 4). Chasing the shadows was a lot of fun. I sat in the last sunlight with a glass of wine afterwards. These shadow people exists for a short moment only and then the disappear in the dark.
As ususal I couldn’t resist to do some Photoshop manipulations to my recent Berlin images. You know this feeling? You see a composition, you know how you want it to look. But there are disturbing objects in the frame, there are missing objects in the frame. Now this is the time when I start working with my MAC, my Wacom tablet and Lightroom and Photoshop. And to be true. It is not always the result which creates the fun factor. It is the process creating an image the way I see it in my imagination.

Next week I am on my way to Berlin.
I will live in the city centre for the first days and I am planning to stay near the center for the following time.
I am looking forward to a hopefully very creative and productive time in Berlin.
Lines of Berlin. Images have been taken during a 24 hours stay in Berlin last weekend. These are 4 images out of series of 40 black and white and monochrome images. More to come soon. Happy days. Reinhold

A few days ago I went to a local park nearby to check out the status of spring. There was this one tree with white blossoms which caught my attention. At the same time dark clouds covered the sky which made the tree to stand out of the darker background. Happy days. Reinhold
Hamburg. Always a special location to visit. Even for a few hours only. I like how the light of the sunrise reflects on the the rails leaving Hamburg’s main station. A railway station and the rails always create a feeling of coming and going. Happy days. Reinhold
