I started October in Stockholm, exploring an incredibly beautiful city.
My hotel was near T-Östermalmstorg, a vibrant part of the city. I’d planned to spend Saturday morning taking a free walking tour of the city, but the tour group was excessively large and there was only one tour guide, so I skipped out and […]
Berlin’s fernsehturm — Berlin’s iconic tower. Sometimes photogenic, but not always.
The Schӧneberg gasometer – in my ‘hood. Visible for miles.
This is Potsdamer Platz on a brilliant Sunday morning. Could not look better.
A week ago I popped in to Tastees, Berlin’s Jamaican restaurant, for dinner. Amazingly good food.
I recently picked up a new camera – so new that I ran into a slight problem: my computer’s software doesn’t have the ability to read the camera’s raw output – fortunately I can still take JPGs and the default settings have been fantastic.
Actually, I am rediscovering how much I love Berlin through the […]
Today, after a long day of work, I had one mission to achieve: getting my camera cleaned. While in the Shetlands I’d noticed that there was a speck of dust in the viewfinder, but that said speck of dust was not showing up in my photographs.
Thank goodness – so I put off dealing with […]
The Shard, Europe’s tallest building.
I’ve been meaning to throw up a couple pictures from my last day in London –it’s only been three weeks. I don’t really have a good excuse other than the fact that work has been keeping me extremely busy, and when I’ve left work, I’ve been feeling exceptionally lazy […]
There’s construction near my office — and today I looked in the hole and saw wiring.
In Alexanderplatz there are quite a few One-Man Bratwurst vendors — today 1.35€ per bratwurst.
Berlin’s famous Fernsehturm was shrouded in low lying clouds this afternoon. Probably not the best afternoon to go up the tower.
Passing an empty playground, I discovered all these autos lined up.
Walking down the cold street, a warm flower…
Bollards do hard work, and a thoughtful Berliner knitted them some hats…
I’ve overscheduled myself this past week with something going on every day after work – whether going to the gym (Tuesday and Thursday) or hosting a friend overnight Friday evening. I’ve now even hired a maid, who came for the first time Wednesday. I’ve also had other things going on in my free-time.
This, in […]
In the hustle and bustle of the last week (in the last week, between the pointless physical therapy and other meetings, I had stuff to do every afternoon after work) I forgot (not really) about my trip to Amsterdam last weekend.
It was a splendid long weekend: I left Berlin first thing […]
