A detail of the interior of the dome. If you want to visit this place, get there early – it’s free, but usually very busy!
Same again, this time with B&W 35mm film. Long shadows & bright light…
A backlit shot of the gate, taken from the Eastern side (Pariser Platz).
A lot of things in Berlin impressed me, and it seemed that the Fernsehturm (TV Tower) was visible from almost anywhere in the city. I didn’t go up to the observation deck, maybe next time….
A Polar Bear in Berlin Zoo. I’d gone along to see the baby bear ‘Knut’ but he was unwell & not on display that day. I felt sorry for the adult bears who seemed to just pace up & down relentlessly. I really don’t like Zoo’s….
I guess it is strange how these things eventually become a tourist attraction…but it is local & world history…
Some kind of environmental protest? Taken on saturday april 14th outside the Reichstag Building in Berlin.
A very unusual sight – this fishing boat ran aground on Portmarnock beach & was waiting for high tide to attempt refloating. While i’ve heard of this happening on the beach I’d never actually seen it until today.
