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!
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.
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.
Another view to the TV Tower – this time seen from Brunnenstrasse, close to Bernauer Strasse.
Lucky us – we were invied to a New Year’s Eve party with access to a rooftop terrace – or at least a terrace with a view to the rooftops of the surrounding buildings. So we basically saw and enjoyed the neighbors’ fireworks with all the comfort you would expect: a glass of sparkling wine (actually it was Champagne), a few couple of dear friends to chat with – and no fear of getting hit by fireworks. Greatness.
In the day time, especially on the weekend the Lucia Christmas Market at Kulturbrauerei Berlin Prenzlauer Berg can be quite crowded. But during the night, the Christmas Market is deserted – and the Christmas Market Booths look more or less abandoned.
A view on the church Zionskirche in Berlin Mitte.

View to Gedächtniskirche on a rainy day.
A HDR image of the French Cathedral at Gendarmenmarkt as seen from its backside on a sunny day.
In German the French Cathedral is called Französischer Dom – the term is German for “French Cathedral”, but in this case (as also in the case of the Berlin Dome and the German Dome) the term refers to the French word for English “dome” and not to a cathedral. Neither church on Gendarmenmarkt was ever the church of a bishop.
In Prenzlauer Berg the “Administrative Office for Citizens” (Bürgeramt / Bezirksamt Pankow Prenzlauer Berg) is located at Fröbelstrasse – a group of old brick buildings, that used to be a hospital. And this red brick chimney used to be part of the hospital too.
The HDR effect is a bit harsh, but – still – i liked the photo somehow. So here it is.
