this week my stinchen turned 28. and this year we will reach 3333 joint days. without you i would be nothing. you teach me the things i don't preside over. be sure, i'm going to look out for you carefully.
i've no idea why this citroën 2cv has to carve out its lonely existence in the darkest corner of this car dealer's facilities. although it sets a nice scene, especially in combination with the large windows and the coloured lights, driving on the road in the background the 2cv would be an even better subject.
between nightfall and daybreak, the time when i'm able to spend some hours with all the things that haven't anything to do with any kind of duties, i use the chance to wander about the winterly town and capture these particular moments on sd card.
i can't even begin to tell you how much i love the prospect of the towers at potsdam square in the west of berlin. once again i was reminded of the tremendous gotham city from the batman series.
the museum island of berlin is divided from the rest of the city by the river spree. in the gallery below i like to show you two different views along the river from one of the thirteen bridges across the island. the first one was captured with standard, the second sample with very high iso settings: i tried to obtain a shutter speed that was suitable for freezing the fluttering flakes of white grain.
at the moment i prepare for my trip to berlin next week. needless to say that besides the actual planning of the main - the day - activities, what is, of course, the most important and time-consuming issue of preparation this week, i already long for the dark side of berlin in my spare time.
let's see how many of the daily 24 hours will be left for wandering about the townscape. till then i delight in a so far not shown street shot from the dark suburbs of lisbon.
although i usually don't take the line of rushing, with my today's posting i'm only scratching the surface for once: what a bike ride (after work), what a weather, what a sight, what a sunset and finally what a day!
rockers don't always have to look like these old school rockers.
while the madsen brothers that constitute three quarter of the whole, german indie-rock band madsen, wear their hair pretty short and neat there is this one exception in the composition of the band: niko maurer, the bassist, reminds me of a funny mix of sideshow bob and john travolta.
any way, the show they provided today night, was outstanding and left a big part of the audience - including me - in a jumble of speechlessness and pure joy.
day one after the trip, time to lick the wounds. postprocessing at all levels.
although today's image is of course no masterpiece of landscape photography, this illustration of the french riviera's rocks is imo a satisfying reproduction of the atmosphere of the cloudy friday. considering the really non-optimal boundary conditions - no time, no tripod, no dedicated location for a shooting, no "normal" uwa lens, no nd-filter and so on - the result is not so bad after all and therefor worth the publication.
at this point i'd like to thank my blogger friend martin again, who reviewed all the images i've published on the blog until now and named his favs. so today, also due t him, you will find one new image in each topic of the gallery.

up to yesterday i didn't know that a fridge can be such a social place. during the evening every guest of my mate dominik's great birthday party availed oneself perceived three to four times with beer and other chilled stuff from the refrigerator. if you had set yourself the goal to meet some new people, you simply had to wait at the fridge for the next thirsty person.
