Radio Berlin

In terms of general city walkability, I’d say that Berlin ranks way up there for me. I had a wonderful time cutting up and down random streets, taking in the history, variety and beauty of the city’s architecture. From the area that I was exploring, The Fernsehturm was always easily visible. In fact, I played a game with myself to try and find the most compelling ways to frame the famed radio tower within my immediate surroundings. Once I came upon this street corner, with its colorful arrangement of building facades on the left and the tree branches on the right, I had found my photo. I like the way I was able to cradle the tower in between these two foreground elements while keeping it off-center.

For now, I’m visiting our Google Nik office in Lübeck but I’m really excited to roam around Hamburg in a few days before flying back home. I have to say – I am really hooked on Germany.

    I agree 100%, +Brian Matiash.  Berlin has got to be the most liveable and accessible city that I've ever visited, and what I love most is walking everywhere.  I also had the lucky experience of taking a boat tour through the many canals throughout the city, and it is amazing what you can see that way (especially architecture and history) — highly recommended.  I would move to Berlin in a heartbeat if a job arose, but it is not a good place for my industry.

    If you make it down to the Lake Constance area I will buy you a beer or dinner or both and can show you some nice castles to shoot.
