    So we jumped on a plane and headed north, up to sunny Berlin - the in-laws seeing it for the first time.

    The Tacheles. Seems they want to close it down. :frown:

    History : from bottom to top, the cells under the garage of the Gestapo main building, then the Wall, then the Ministry of Finance (before, the DDR seat of the Council of Ministers, and before again, the Aviation Ministry, office of the fat guy)

    All shot with my E-PL1 and the 14-42mkI and 20/1.7

    There are a lot more where these came from

    That's for sure - great series and thank you so much for allowing me to travel along with you, Alf. I love the intensity of the colors in some of the latter images here. These are really nice, Alf. I can't comment more now - must get off line but I am going to look more closely via Flickr, for sure. Wonderful to see these here.

    Alf,

    That memorial shot - a really absorbing photograph. It would be amazing as a reasonably large print.

    Stunning Alf! I love Berlin and you've managed to capture pretty much every aspect of it in this set. Looks like you had good weather too. Love the processing on the last shot and the memorial shot. We had similarily good weather this weekend though unfortunately I didn't get out with the camera as much as I'd liked.

    Great stuff!

    Great shots. Jealous of your fine weather. When we were there a few weeks ago it was grey, cold and raining.
