    Some details from a rainy day walk. I think the muted dark green colors captured my interest that day.

  • First photowalk with my “new” Nikon D80

    First photowalk with my “new” Nikon D80

    It’s been a while since I bought myself an old Nikon D80. I chose this particular camera because it was one of the last DSLRs still using a CCD sensor.

  • Stairs


    I like stairs. They come in so many forms, sizes and colors. It is always nice to catch some stairs empty especially the ones connecting train platforms with the streets above or below them.

  • Street Experiments

    Street Experiments

    Street photography is something that lately I came to appreciate. These are my experiments mostly from 2022. These photos are neither great nor outstanding.

    Berlin Alexanderplatz: A triplet in one image

    1: The station hall was originally built in 1882 but after severe damage in WWII redesigned in 1962 with a more austere socialist look. This look was mostly kept during the reconstruction finishing in 1998. The hall is to this day quite impressive. 2: The large department store (“Kaufhaus Tietz”) was built in the early…
