Alexanderplatz… When The Sun Is Out! May 22, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — LHM @ 2:03 am

My time in Berlin is winding down, and I am working hard on my photo projects. Today I was able to have some free time in the city. First I went to the Frida Kahlo exhibit at that  Martin-Gropius-Bau. The exhibit was wonderful and so was the historic building it was held in. Afterwords I wandered the city some, then people watched in Alexanderplatz. Here are some photos of the people I encountered today, the sun was out full force in Berlin.

Funny “PayPal” things were running around Alexanderplatz!

They were huddling to make a game plan!

Biking Berlin May 18, 2010

Our Flat Tire Bike Tour Guide

So it has been some time since I have gotten such a work out. First the 5 hour walking tour, then my own night time walking tour, and now we have completed a 5 hour BIKING tour. We went all around Berlin, but stayed on the West for most of our biking adventure. This is a very colorful part of town, it also has the East Gallery  a stretch of the Berlin wall that is still standing cover in beautiful graffiti art.

It has been longer than I would like to admit since I have ridden a bike so the first half was shaky, and scary with all the people, cars and other bike around me.

A little taste of the amazing art work on the Berlin Wall.

Jesse one of my classmate spent his 21st birthday biking around Berlin.

My favorite street art so far, I think it speaks for itself.

Maria one of my roommates on her bike during the tour.

Still working hard here in Berlin, going to meet with my subject at 1pm tomorrow. Lets just hope I can find him in the sea of people. This is Berlin are going fast and I am feeling the pressure to get my project started.

The Sun DID Come Out Tomorrow!

Filed under: Uncategorized — LHM @ 3:23 am

Today started out a little gloomy, but as the day went on something amazing happened…. THE SUN SHOWED ITS FACE! It could not have been better timing since we went on a 4 hour walking tour through the city of Berlin. During the walk we were able to see most of Berlin’s sights, and the Holocaust Memorial. It was such a great day, with so many captured moments.

The Berlin Cathedral during the day… night photos to come!

We were all so inspired by the sun we even took the train out of the city to a lake ,and then took a ferry to the other side. We found a beer garden, and this place looked like what I would have imagined Germany too look! It was so cute almost out of a story book… or Epcot .

Now I will leave you with a photo of David my fellow traveler…..

We like him 🙂

Well it is 3am and I need to get some sleep! I will post my night photography photos in the am for now I am off to bed.



BERRRRRRLIN May 15, 2010

Well, today was WET and COLD here in Berlin, Germany. Looks like it was stay cold the rest of our trip 😦 Things did not go as planed for todays activities due to the bad weather, but the city was full of Fussbol fans! We were walking to get some lunch at the train-station and come across some rowdy fans! We also visited a bombed out church in West Germany. I was not very happy with my photos today I blame the rain! I am sure I will make up for it in the next few week.Inside the bombed out Church
