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 Pictures I took a year ago are often already outdated when I come back to the location where I took them.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.

Now with the prosaic part out of the way, go check out the archives! :)

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

Waterpump, Türkenstraße, Wedding, Berlin
These waterpumps can be found all over Berlin; in theory, they should be working, as in the case of a desaster big enough to make the water supply break down, they are supposed to become the source of drinking water for the city’s population.  I doubt they’re being checked regularly, though, since Berlin is so broke the city removed the trash cans from a few park areas in the hopes people would take away their trash to save on the cost of having them emptied.
