Berlin Stories

Happy new year, everyone!!!

For my first blogpost in 2017, I chose some of my favourite pictures from last year, which somehow I never got around to show you. In late September, on a really warm autumn evening I met with Viktoria, a model based in Leipzig. She was for work in Berlin, so we decided to meet for a spontaneous photo session. We wanted to shoot at the Gleisdreieck Park, an urban park in the heart of Berlin, that somehow never got as popular as the Tempelhofer Feld.

However, we met around 6pm, we were really late with the sun seting around 7pm in September. In the end we had around half an hour to shoot, trying to catch the fading light. But sometimes half an hour is all you need... In the end all that matters is that you go out and make the best of it.

Desktop Wallpaper // December

December 02, 2016

(1920 x 1280)

Surprised about my choice for the December wallpaper?

Let me explain briefly: at first I was looking for a winterly, or even better, a Christmassy picture, which is obvious for December... but while I was browsing through my archives, I came across pictures of this sunrise. It was taken two years ago in France, Côte d'Azur, and it really was one of the most beautiful sunrises I had ever seen. Even two years later, the memory is still enchanting. I already had chosen another picture of it, a very similar one, to be the wallpaper in July. So I abandoned the idea quickly.

But it is the last wallpaper and also the last month of 2016.  And to be honest: this year was horrid in so many ways... I came back to this picture and decided that it should be this one for December 2016 - a sunrise. As a sign of hope and optimism. For me - and hopefully for you, too.

So I hope you like it and I wish you a wonderful December, a very merry Christmas and a very happy new year!

Desktop wallpaper // November

November 06, 2016

(1920 x 1280 px)

For this month' desktop wallpaper I chose a picture I took during my 365picture-project "July to July" (you can read more about it here: click). It has been one of my favourites ever since. I took it on my way home from a bridge that leads across the Berlin Stadtautobahn on a cold winter evening. So you see on this picture the lights of passing cars, illuminated houses, and the Berlin Funkturm (green tower in the back). I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Have a wonderful November!
