I had been to Hamburg a couple of times before, but I never really spent much time there. All of my visits were very brief, like hanging out a few hours at the bus station on a 24h trip from Copenhagen to Bern. Or just visiting for a few hours to see a football game. This time, though, we had four full days to really see things, do stuff, and – most of all – eat things. Four days still aren’t very long, but we had a terrific time and actually saw and did a ton of things. We rented a beautiful Airbnb apartment right next to Planten un Blomen park and very close to the bustling Karolinenviertel and alternative Sternschanze area.
It’s almost exactly a year ago now that we went to Munich (I’ve actually briefly been there twice since) and discovered the beautiful, unique Stereo Stereo Cafe. They serve most delicious food and drinks and they make THE most amazing Chai Latte in the world. Besides spending an hour or a few there every day throughout our visit, we visited the Pinakothek der Moderne, walked around the city freezing, and attended the Medientage München, a media conference and fair. Take a look…
Better late than never. I'd shot these two short videos this summer in Berlin, after buying the new Canon 6D. So it sort of served the purpose of trying out the video mode of the camera, as well as the Magic Lantern firmware. I hope, this might bring back a few short minutes of summer into this cold time of the year.
Finally back in Berlin. This time, we drove there by car and stayed for four days. Once again, some of the usual sights for photos. Again, we spent nights on Revaler Strasse, enjoying Berlin's awesome night life. Each time, there are many new things to discover in that city, and still it feels more familiar each time. One of the world's best-designed and most interesting memorials is the Holocaust Memorial. That guy rocks!
I was finally back in Berlin after quite some while. That city’s still so fascinating to me, I guess it comes first in Europe (after Bern). I was there for 4.5 days, unfortunately the weather didn’t improve: after a couple hours of sunshine it was just day after day of thick white fog. I went to a club called Cassiopeia with some Irish, British and South African folks. Best place I’ve been out to in Berlin yet. They almost wouldn’t return my jacket when leaving though. I attended Creative Mornings Berlin #14 at Charlottenburg’s orangelab. Young design studio Bold Futures presented some of their work with “speculative science ficton prototypes” for products or services. Quite special field of work, it was interesting though. […]
