Black & White Berlin II

As I mentioned 2 posts ago, I took some photos with my Canon FT QL 35mm while in Berlin. One roll of 400 tri-x pan film. I already posted black and white photography from the trip (mostly architecture) but these came out so much better than the digital ones I think.

Tacheles in Mitte. Former SS headquarters turned artists commune. Due to gentrification the future of this building is unknown.

Sammlung Boros in The Bunker. Built by the Nazis as an air raid shelter, it has concrete walls up to 2 meters thick. It is now a private exhibition space.

Breath-taking examples of modern architecture in Berlin. I believe this building is part of the Gemadlegalerie complex.

Jewish Museum by Daniel Libeskind. This building was one of my obsessions during the architecture school days, so it was great to finally see it in person.

It was such beautiful weather while I was in Berlin in October. Look at that sky.

Sexy gargoyle time in Potsdam.

What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
