Sunday afternoon in Prenzlauerberg

Joseph/ March 2, 2014/ Uncategorized/ 0 comments

As I mentioned in my previous post, lately I have returned to shooting street photography with the trusty 50mm f/1.4 lens. For a long time, I went about using three other lenses, often referred to as the ‘holy trinity’ of f/2.8 lenses. I’m talking about the Nikkor 14-24mm wide angle lens, the 24-70mm mid-zoom, and the 70-200mm telephoto. The wide-angle

I like to get somewhat geometric shots when the opportunity presents itself. This row of doors was quite striking, and the cyclist passing by seemed to have noticed them too.

The Sun returns to Berlin

For the first time in weeks, months even – the sun has returned to Berlin. It goes without saying that my spirits were lifted to the heights they used to occupy before the Wintry misery set in. (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

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!

So here goes the first picture on this blog posted from my new home in Germany. I snapped this picture this cold morning upon arriving at work; most certainly can’t complain about the beautiful surroundings!
