As you all know, Berlin was divided until the wall came down in 1989. And to celebrate the fall of the wall, the city got thousands of cherry trees as a gift by the Japanese people. These cherry trees were planted along the former Berlin wall strip. And what was once a place of guns, barbed wire and shooting orders, it is now a peaceful alley where people walk leisurely, picnic under the trees, hold hands. A sign of hope in this troubled world.

And in one of these alleys I photographed Luise and these are the pictures I show you today.

  2. I'm glad you posted these - they are simply gorgeous!
