As I mentioned in my previous post, lately I have returned to shooting street photography with the trusty 50mm f/1.4 lens.

(Each sentence I write drips with my love for Winter, doesn’t it?) Anyway, so this afternoon I went for the first proper photo-walk

Some moments simply have to be shared.
Ok, so I might end up regretting that title in a few minutes when I go to catch the S-bahn to get home, but anyway – here’s a snapshot of the view outside the office late this afternoon as the sun was beginning to set. Have a good evening, folks!
