775th anniversary, Nikolaiviertel, Berlin, Hauptstadt, Germany, Deutschland, fotoeins.com

Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, forty-four

10 years ago, I began an around-the-world (RTW) journey lasting 389 consecutive days, from 24 December 2011 to 15 January 2013 inclusive.

28 October 2012.

The village of Cölln is mentioned in a document dated 28 October 1237, effectively marking the birth of modern-day Berlin. The Museum Island is the present-day location for Cölln. Fast forward to 2012, the city of Berlin celebrated the 775th anniversary of the city’s founding on the banks of the Spree river. From the Nikolaiviertel to Schlossplatz, fire provided the illumination to the endless fascination of residents and visitors. France’s Cie Carabosse provided artists with sculptures breathing fire, wreathes twirling flame, and claypots as radiating sources of heat and light. In the image above, a folding wreath of flaming claypots appears to surround the Fernsehturm (TV Tower) in the background.

I made the image on 28 Oct 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/8-sec, f/4.5, ISO800, and 30mm focal length (48mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-mCt.
