Berlin impressions

Some weeks ago I made a short trip to Berlin. In brief: I absolutely loved the city as it's not an overpolished stack of protected palaces but a truly unique metropole, so bitterly diverse and progressive. Not a generic businesstown but a perfect mix of old glory and eventful post WWII history.

Instead of usual architecture snapping I tried to create some atmospheric shots by concentrating on details I found interesting. So, here you go...

Prenzlauer Berg.

Despite the presence of grey and massive GDR architecture Alexanderplatz is exuberantly colorful. Actually I think it's one of the most attractive urban environments on planet earth, in it's very unique way.

The end.

Excellent and very artistic shots! Thank you very much for sharing!

I love the fact you went out to Wedding, which not many people seem to do for some reason.

Congratulations! You captured the real feel of this city. Incredible shots. Berlin indeed is different from any other city in the world. It is absolutely unusual and unique, some say Berlin's soonest comparison is Detroit - but without crimes! Anyway, Berlin is trash, wonderful trash - so enjoy!

Incredible how I have memories from almost all of the places in those pics. Amazing view of Berlin's main stations and streets. And yeah, I agree to iconic, you captures the real feel of this city.
