Last week we had a chance for a week long trip to Berlin, a city that has been a source of curiosity and interest for a long time.

first photo...

Anne Frank amongst the many outsize murals and graffiti that
are a large presence in all of Berlin.

taking a break...

A portrait opportunity at the East Side Gallery, a long stretch
of the former Berlin Wall.

the big question...

a hooded crow takes off from a fence loaded with posters 
advertising a very active club scene...

a lonely Kiosk...

a back lot in one of the many squat buildings that are
scattered about several neighborhoods in central Berlin...

Need a back scratcher? A side trip to Berlin's really huge 
Sunday flea market...

A wall mural homage to the planes that participated in the Berlin
Airlift (1948-49)

                                 This portrait of Khaled Mohamed Said, painted on panels from
                                 the former Berlin Wall, celebrates the young Egyptian activist
                                 whose death in police custody was an important inspiration
                                 during the Arab Spring movement.
