Berlin: of angles and angels, at Friedrichstrasse

I always found a crisp cool bite in the air on clear fall days whenever I was in Germany. At dusk on a late-October afternoon, I wandered to Friedrichstrasse Station in the German capital city of Berlin. There is the usual hustle and bustle of people entering and exiting a busy train station and important transfer junction.

I looked up and saw how the cumulus clouds were angled with respect to the top-line of the station building and how the clouds were illuminated. A plane’s contrail at the edge of the frame only added to the mystery.

It goes to show how the convergence of seemingly independent factors can produce a little piece of magic.

I had my camera with me wherever I went.
I was at the right place at the right time.
I remained observant.

Fading fall-light.
Shape and silhouette.
Lines and angles.
