Berlin Winter - Snow in the Courtyard - Photo: T.Bortels/bilderbook.org
First snow for a while – and in a few hours it will all be gone. But this moment was beautiful and I’m glad I took this picture. The bikes are cowered with a thin layer of snow and just a couple of footsteps are seen – traces of neighbors in the winter wonderland that is our courtyard.
Glad they revently repaired the lights – otherwise I would not have been able to capture this moment. Thank you! and greetings to the caretaker!
Berlin cobblestone street - Photo: Bilderbook
If you have ever been to Berlin, you are probably familiar with this view: a rather typical photo of a cobblestone street somewhere in Berlin Mitte. This pattern may look beautiful – but riding your bicycle on this kind of street can be difficult, especially when the streets are wet. Also, cars drivin on cobblestone streets are slightly more noisy – but at least everybody seems to drive a bit mre careful, since the nobody wants to ruin their bumpers.
You can also find this image in the stock photo section right here.
The U-Bahn Station Moritzplatz by night, Berlin Kreuzberg.
A photo of more or less typical Berlin cobblestone pavement. In this image you see a rather boring piece of Berlin pavement – usually the pattern of the stones is a bit more inspiring. But maybe this boringness makes this picture special. And what I additionally like about this picture: due to rainy weather the space between the stones is growing moss.
You can find this photo over at the stock photo section.
I just opened another category for the stock images section of Bilderbook: backgrounds. There you’ll find images that are suitable as a background image or background pattern – for websites, but also for print products.
This one almost looks like a flag, although it basically just shows, what in Berlin you would see everywhere: a wall – and some cobble sone pavement. Although – i have to admit that i was amazed how clean this wall looks like. Usually Berlin Walls are covered with Streetart – Graffiti and Tags – this one was probably just painted. So you could for example use this image as a canvas – to add your very own message on the wall – your very own virtual Graffiti.
In case you want to use the image – please feel free to purchase the appropriate license right here. Thank you!
Sitting in a friend’s courtyard somewhere in the middle of nowhere – basically right in the center of Berlin Mitte. We were have a very small birthday party with Grill and Beer – Berlin style. Nice.
View from Schönhauser Allee / Schwedter Strasse down to Mitte – looking towards the TV Tower. On this particular Sunday evening the skies were particularly beautiful, all colors – the sunset coloring the clouds in mellow yellow, orange and light blue.
Please feel free to like to photo over here on instagram.
I Won’t add much to this. I know how it is meant – that you shouln’t not take pictures inside this location – but I somehow find the message much deeper…
Nothing much to see here – just a picture of a beautiful Red Audi Quattro from 1982–1984.
Quite an ‘arty’ statement: “Art is my life …” – but why end the message with three dots? Why not with an exclamation mark?! …we will probably never know, what the original artist intended to say…
A graffiti/tag on the wall of a Berlin bar by an unknown artist.
Blue skies, yellow house, green streetlamp. This streetlamp in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg completely overgrown. Actually in this street near Mauerpark you would find a couple of streetlamps that are more or less overgrown – but this one was the nicest. And the light of the evening sun plays nicely with the yellow facade.
Somebody painted this park bench in rainbow colors. I am totally loving it. I mean – it’s not just ‘painted’ but actually somebody took the time and effort to either draw little drops, or maybe the paint was just of the right fluidity to draw the drop traces itself. However it was done – now it’s a great art piece.
Seen somewhere near Bernauer Strasse.
