    Signs of Low Color

    Germans love signs, we love to tell each other what not to do and where not to do it. Here is a small collection purposefully de-saturated. This sign denotes a zone where motor vehicles shall not exceed a speed of 30 kilometers per hour. Speed limits in Germany are one of the few rules that…

    Photowalk Potsdam #1: Passages

    A gray and overcast day. Still people were doing their shopping. I was more interested in all the entrances, passages and courtyards throughout the city. I like the little nooks and crannies I can find there. Unfortunately most people (i.e. tourists and shoppers) are too lazy to explore the side streets and courtyards and just…

    Photowalk Berlin #2: Ramping up the Highway

    Just me, my camera and pleasant conversation. This time I went through the district of Steglitz. The weather was overcast and cold. Perfect for moody black and white shots.

    A walk with film recipes #6: Ilford Ortho 80 Plus

    East German is weather is currently a melange of different kinds of grey interspersed by light rain and uncomfortable winds. That is a typical Berlin winter for you and it has been like it since November last year. Which means that there was not much photography to be done. So this time why not have…

  • Window Shopping

    Window Shopping

    The term window shopping describes the activity of looking into shop windows without buying anything or sometimes even entering the store. This is what I have been doing for a while. Because people who are not vaccinated against Covid are only allowed to enter shops that sell “essential goods” like supermarkets, drug stores and so…
