These two photographs of the same scene were taken while in Berlin. I love Berlin. The place and the people remind me of London and New York City.
That sometimes gets some odd looks until I explain that Berlin is much like my London of the 80’s and it has a familiar feel about it; from the slightly run down areas, redevelopment, music scene and so on………
Anyway, the photos.
They are early attempts at night photography and although technically I would execute the capture differently today… Exposure would be different, focusing would be different and I’m sure the composition might be different; I still like them both.
Maybe when I head back to Berlin I will take these images again although it would be unlikely to have a car parked at the same spot and therefore the story would be very different.
Although I would have done things differently, as I said, I still really like these two images. Mostly because of the mood they create rather than anything else. Personally I have problems picking a favourite between the two; they both have their own weak points but more importantly, their own strengths.
It makes me wonder how photographers ever manage to pick an exhibition set?
So, I hope you like the images.
As always, your comments and thoughts are welcome.
