July to July // update

Summer in the city
[Summer in the city or view into a Berlin "Hinterhof" - I think it is looking a tad Expressionistic...]

The first month of taking a picture every day is over. It's indeed really challenging to get a picture (that satisfies me at least a bit) every day. There are days when I just walk and see and click and it's almost going by itself and I love almost every bit of it. Then there are those days when nothing really works and almost every picture sucks. But for me that's also part of this project - learning to accept this and work with it, or against it.

I've chosen some of the pictures I liked best from my July to show you here.
You can also follow this "journey" on my Flickr [click] or via my Facebook [click].

summer rain
[it rained so heavily sometimes and was so warm that Berlin felt almost tropical]

a midsummer night's dream
[a pop-up summer picnic with lampions and light-juggler]

Before the match
[view from the Siegessäule over the Fanmeile two hours before the World Cup Finals]
[PS: I see faces - do you?]

[meditative spinning wheel]

Whatever happened to E.T.?
[a window somewhere in Berlin Schöneberg - now I know what became of E.T.]

Summer Sunday evening
[a lazy Sunday evening at a beer garden]

21/365 - I see faces.
[no words needed, just to cute, these old VW busses...]
[by the way, I see faces again. It is smiling...]

23/365 - Berlin sky tonigh
[for this picture I didn't have to leave the house, just leaning wide out of the window - a favourite :) ]

25/365 - eye, mirror, lens
[just before leaving work - luckily, no colleagues came in ... ;-) ]

26/365 - Sunset
[standing in front of my grandparents' house and watching the sun go down over the village - a perfect moment]

28/365 - Groszer oder Stiller Ozean
[I always look if the globe is still there when I pass this antique shop on my way home ... one day...]

29/365 - Heavy rain today
[and rain again - looks like a jungle, not Berlin]

31/365 - Berliner Flure
[there's a new series coming...]

33/365 - Lightning over the Autobahn
[I stood on a bridge at the Berlin autobahn and captured my first lightning.]
[Oh, and I see faces, again!]


  1. Wunderschöne Bilder. Ich mag Berlins Treppenhäuser, Berlins Dschungel und die nächtlichen Lichter sehr. Die Sonnenuntergänge sind allerdings auch sehr schön.

    Es ist hart, jeden tag ein Foto zu schießen. Ich habe 365/365 vor ein paar Jahren gemacht und ja, habe mich zwischendurch recht zusammenreißen müssen. Bin allerdings sehr gespannt auf all deine schönen Bilder!

    1. Freut mich, dass sie Dir gefallen! Du hast also die 365 geknackt, chapeau! Ich kann mir vorstellen, dass es öfter Momente gibt, wo man sich fragt, warum eigentlich. Aber irgendwie wird man dann auch belohnt, mit all den Erinnerungen, die man festhalten konnte.

  2. Beautiful, beautiful photographs. And that lense is craaaazy gorgeous! wow!

  3. such a beautiful series ...and good luck your your 365 days project. I did it in 2010 and enjoyed it and learned a lot from it. I would like to do it again a one point :)

    1. Thank you! I saw your 365 album on Flickr, it looks great!

  4. I very much like your pictures, they are truly beautiful!

  5. Your photos are beautiful. You have a wonderful talent.

  6. The fist one makes me think of a set design. Wonderful!
    I see faces too...

  7. great pics. I usually fail at challenges like this. I just can't seem to get myself to do something every day, definitely not to take inspired pictures every day

  8. This picnic looks incredible! :) Such a nice place

  9. that lightning photo is incredible!!

  10. Oh, I do so love your photos, and the ones with your reflection are my favorites!

  11. ich bin begeistert! so ein Fotoprojekt hatte ich auch mal im Kopf... das wären dann bei mir etwa zehn Rollen Film :)
    liebe Grüße!
