Over the last couple of weeks, I had the opportunity to share a studio with some others. It has a small dark room, where I trained to develop negatives and make prints. So at the moment I am learning and experimenting a lot with analogue photography especially large format - but that's another story ... :)
Anyway, what this post is about, is my way to the studio. I often went there after work when the early summer evenings began. Since the weather here in Berlin has been wonderful lately (really like you imagine a summer in Berlin - people everywhere, colours, barbecue smells, glasses clanging, the smell of water, the chopping of the Spree ...) I often went by bike, to not miss one bit of the sunshine and the atmosphere. The way I took was actually longer but much more to see and to marvel - around the Victory column, through the Tiergarten, along the Spree with its pelasure boats, the new government district, underneath the Berlin Main Station's railtracks and along the former Berlin Wall (which now has a bycicle path next to it, as a memorial way, so that you can cycle along the whole Berlin Wall).
