The ultimate goal, which I'll never reach, is to picture "all of Berlin": Every street, every bridge, every park... The moment I'm finished -years from now, presumably- I might as well start all over again, considering the constant change going on in Berlin. Pictures I took a year ago are often already outdated when I come back to the location where I took them. And that's exactly what I like about the idea: "One must imagine Sisyphus happy."
If you want to see a particular place - write me. I can't promise I'll go there for you, but I will try. And if you yourself are a visitor of the city who wants to take pictures: remember this is not a city with a single, historical center where all the picturesque motifs are crammed together, it is a huge patchwork of city centers that you have to discover. This is more than just one city.

I also have a tiny side blog where I share my collection of old postcards from all over the world. It's temporary. Go check. :) allofoldpostcards.tumblr.com

Question to you guys…

…those of you who are still around after my lengthy hiatus, that is!

What’s more important, more pictures or better quality?

Since i take pics in a kind of “walking by” modus anyways and don’t spend hours editing them, I will probably never offer HDR gallery pics, but would you be just as interested in seeing the occasional smart phone pic “of the day” or should i stay in the middle ground I’ve been trying to tread here?

And would you be interested in seeing other Berlin stuff now and then - or should I keep this “original content” only? I’m curious.

Question with 3 notes

calypsorobi asked: great blog! can i ask you what you do in berlin? this is great, and whenever you go past ostbahnof and you have time do a picture, do it! i have so many memories around that place. thank you, keep on doing this, it makes me feel less nostalgic about that wierd city

Thanks! :) Ostbahnhof should be no prob - it’s my gate into the city, basically!

I’ve been living here for a few years and trying to see as much of the city as possible. Let me use this as an opportunity to say I’ve been away for health related reasons for a while, and I’ve got a batch of new pics ready before I go into the Easter holidays, and then… I’ll be back with more, and looking forward to it.
