Fotoeins Friday: Multimodal motion, Berlin Tempelhof

People in Berlin decided in a 2014 referendum against development and opted to retain the Tempelhof Airport as a park. On a good day in any season, there are bicycles, joggers, skateboarders, kite-flyers, people with model planes and drones. In warmer weather, couples are having picnics on the grass and groups are busy at various grill stations. The former airport was utilized as a giant green space called “Tempelhofer Feld” after the airport’s closure in 2008.


With public transport, it’s easy to reach the old Tempelhof airport:
U-Bahn – U6 to Paradestrasse, U8 to Leinestrasse;
S-Bahn – S41, S42, S45, S46 to Tempelhof Berlin.

A portion of the park was set aside in September 2015 for an emergency camp for refugees with plans for a controversial expansion, but the camp might eventually be closed.

I made the above photograph on 19 October 2012 with the Canon EOS450D, 18-55 IS II kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/80s, f/5.6, ISO200, 47mm focal length (75mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-7A0.
