Our first stop in our European adventures this summer was in Berlin, Germany. It was our first time in the German capital, which means we didn't know much about it at first (even though we researched the area for several months). Naturally, as first-time tourists, we booked a hotel in the large public square. At first, it was a very neat place. After a day or two... more like Times Square in New York. Busy, dirty, and uninspiring. However, it still makes for a nice place for some street photography with the Fuji X100T in hand.
I liked the aesthetics because it carries some communist-ish style architecture, even after all these years after re-unification. It is the main square in Mitte, and you do have access to all avenues of public transportation. This area of Berlin is certainly accessible and fantastic for some travellers. But... now that we know Berlin a tiny bit more, we would probably stay in another neighbourhood next time.
While Jill was doing a little bit of shopping, I walked around for fifteen minutes and tried to grab a few scenes of this large public square. I'm glad I did. I really like the way they turned out.
