Fotoeins Friday: Berlin fall, four
(Autumn in Berlin, 4 of 4.)
After the Soviet Union had closed and cut off all ground-based supply routes in 1948 to West Berlin, Tempelhof Airport (THF) became the focal point for providing a lifeline between West Germany and West Berlin during the Berlin Airlift from 1948 to 1949. Tempelhof continued operating as an airport until 2008.
The former airfield is now well-used by Berliners as a beloved green space in the “middle of the city.” A part of the vast flat grassy areas includes a large area for grilling; I had imagined bumper-to-bumper grills with little battery-operated fans blowing out wafts to tempt passers-by.
I made the photo above on 19 Oct 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and the following settings: 1/400-sec, f/4.5, ISO200, and 29mm focal length (46mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-ltm.
