Kastanienallee Ecke Schönhauser in the Mist

Kastanienallee Ecke Schönhauser in the Mist

Early morning misty glory – view down Kastienallee towards the street corner of Schönhauser Allee a.k.a. Ecke Schönhauser. The neighborhood still seems to be asleep – only a tram waiting at the tram stop and a bicycle rider passing by. Lights reflecting on the wet street.  In the background you see the iconic overpass of subway line U1 near Eberswalder station in the mist.

I like it a lot when it’s like this – a bit cold, a bit misty, a bit grey, a bit dark – during the winter time Berlin can look like this for weeks or even months.

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.

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.

A view from the highrise in Voltastrasse, housing the Deutsche Welle headquarters. In the center of the photo you can see the almost iconic floodlights of Jahnstadion – the football stadium at Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn-Sportpark next to Mauerpark. On the left side you find the satellite dishes, from where Deutsche Welle is broadcasting 20/7.

The photo was taken in HDR with an iPhone4.
