Berlin Lights

Posted by

Just back from Berlin, where we sampled the highlights of the city, and the wienerschnitzel, the currywurst, and the odd cocktail or two… A great city, with so much to see and a nice vibe. Modern, but so much of the city either a celebration or a memorial to the past. The Reichstag (and dome), the East Side Gallery were standout attractions, as was the Jewish Museum by architect Daniel Leibskind. More images to follow of those photogenic places!

We walked a long way to find this bar nicknamed, Bambi. Maybe the antlers over the bar were ironic, but there was a huge painting of the little deer on the wall. Berlin was also the first full outing for the Fuji X100 – its the perfect city camera. A few gripes, but probably down to user error! More to follow on that… This shot was taken in super low light at 3200 ISO, at a tenth of a second (handheld!), at f2.8 – and I’ve added the film grain!
