Sacré-Cœur

Beautiful cathedral. Unfortunately, way too crowded at that day (or every day?). So crowded that I failed to appreciate the elegance of the place when I was at the spot. Now, looking through pictures, those shades of grey make my mouth water. I know it’s weird, but isn’t it really, strikingly, beautiful?


Adlershof – Science At Work

One sees this phrase right when they exit S-Bahn station. Sounds promising, right? And promise is kept. According to the official web page, Adlershof is Germany’s leading Science and Technology park containing ten Non-University Research Institutes, six Natural Science departments of Humboldt University and some 1000 businesses. It is also a relatively recently developed area with some very nice pieces of modern architecture and some interesting historical buildings.

What else? It was also very dead when we’ve been there. We’ve spent around good 2-3 hours there and apart from 2-3 persons, couple of cars and an empty tram passed by (once) there was no other movement or happenings. The whole park had a little “ghosty” feeling. But it could be different now, when school holidays are gone and, perhaps, if you visit the place some time different from sunday evening 😉 By the way, if you still decide to visit the place on Sunday, don’t expect any coffee anywhere close and prepare in advance.

I do recommend looking into the official web page for further information in case you’re interested in this place as it contains all the information about every aspect of the park, it feels.

We also were very lucky to get some rain during our stay there and some very nice rainbow 🙂 And of course I couldn’t resist capturing even more geometry which has not so much in common with Adlershof, but is fascinating in itself.

 

Thanks for staying with me. More coming very soon.


U-Bhf. Bundestag

I actually think it’s one of the most beautiful places in the city. It is an underground station U-Bahnhof Bundestag (U55). Now it mostly looks to me as station made either for politicians travelling from Berlin Hauptbahnhof to Regierungsviertel (Government Quarters) or for tourists 🙂 That is because U55 line has only three stops, two of which are terminal. Some time in future though, line will be connected with U5 and we’ll get a possibility to get to Hbf using U-Bahn. But words aside, have a look yourself.

Photos were made during a “Tripod Sunday” with Jens and Lejla. And again I should thank those guys for letting me use one of their tripods. Buy the way, these are not the only pictures taken this day, there’re more to come 🙂

And, “most important” news of the day. I’m proud;) I watched all the Doctor Who up to the end of S07. And I can say that (even though I didn’t like him in the beginning), Eleventh Doctor is great. Matt Smith, thank you. That was great 🙂 And most likely I’ll see you again tomorrow. Because, guess what, tomorrow, in CineStar, special screening of S08E01! And I’m happy holder of a ticket ^_^

Now, that said, I’m thinking I should watch less TV Shows and spend more time with my friends 🙂 Sorry guys, I’ll be more active 🙂 Now, kana, I have to get back to you…

Thanks for staying with me.


A Tripod Sunday

I don’t use tripods. Either because mine is way too heavy or because I am generally impatient. But then there are people who use them all the time and can’t imagine taking pictures without one. And they really make it work, I must say. Living example is Jens and Leila. I really loved what they do, and it’s so much different from my usual style of taking pictures: very patient, very slow, meticulous.

In the end I had lots of fun time having a chit chat in time of those unbelievably long 30-80 second exposures. And even tried one myself ^_^. It’s not hard, but needs lots of preparation and a good feeling of wide-angle photography. I don’t have a so-good-one so my pics came out pretty ordinary, but I still like them a lot.

First two are ones made with ND filters. Others I’ll share later, they kind of don’t fit 🙂 So stay tuned.

And thanks for staying with me.
