Mauerpark Berlin: The Graffiti Wall

Mauerpark Berlin: The Graffiti Wall

A sunny afternoon in the Mauerpark – somebody is working on his new graffiti piece, somebody else is watching. During the summer months the wall in Mauerpak is basically re-designed / re-decorated every sunday – so there is always something new to discover.

In the background you can see the floodlight of the football stadium of Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn-Sportpark.

Helsinki: Uspenski Cathedral and Market Square

I took this photo when we were taking a boat from the market square to the islands around Helsinki. In the foreground you see the lively central Market Square – in the background the impressive Uspenski Cathedral. On the right side the iconic Stora Enso building by Alvar Aalto form 1962, also known as “The Sugar Cube” because of its exterior made of pure white Carrara marble.
