New-in-Berlin #3: About

July 21, 2014

Welcome to my new series. New-in-Berlin is for Berlin what Point-And-Shoot was for D.C. It's about being a stranger again. About taking pictures in a huge city you don't know yet. About learning every day, with each and every shot, about becoming more and more familiar. 

It's about discovering a new place through the lens, with your own eyes and own mind wide open. It's about capturing impressions when they appear the very first time. It's about marvelling about everything, the light, the architecture, the sound, and of course the people and their activities. At a time when most things are just new for you.

Seeing Berlin this way won't last long. Maybe a few weeks, maybe a couple of months. Sooner or later I will run out of time or interest or both, and New-in-Berlin will come to an end. I'll let you know ;-) In the meantime, join me to discover this most fascinating city and enjoy!

PS. For those who care, I've been photographing with a Fuji X-T1 for quite a while now. Since we're still in travel mode (the containers haven't arrived yet), I'm only using the 18-55 mm or the 1.4/23 mm most of the time. As a long time Micro Four Thirds shooter I must admit I like the Fuji! It not only produces great images but makes taking pictures fun. What else can you wish for as a photographer?
