My Berlin: that tower again

I like shiny pointy objects, and if it’s by deliberate effort or accidental circumstance, the Fernsehturm (TV Tower) finds its way into a LOT of pictures from Berlin. And if people throughout Berlin can see the tower, how do those who live in or commute through different parts of the capital city view the landmark? After documenting multiple visits between 2005 and 2017, here are over 40 lines of sight to the TV Tower from throughout the Berlin area.

Fotoeins Friday: ALEXA at night in Berlin

20 December 2012.

The bright letters of the illuminated sign help light the way to the S-Bahn and regional train station at Alexanderplatz in Berlin. The Television Tower bisects the sign as an arriving S-Bahn train appears in motion-blur to the lower-left. The landmark tower and station signage are an appropriate way to end my period of two months in the German capital city on the last stage of my year-long around-the-world (RTW) journey.


I made the photo above on 20 December 2012 with the Canon EOS450D, 18-55 kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/15-sec, f/4.5, ISO800, 32mm focal length (51mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-9lZ.

Fotoeins Friday: Wait and commute, Berlin Alexanderplatz

“Zusammen allein (Alone together)”

Berlin’s Alexanderplatz is an important transit exchange with bus, tram, and train (RE, RB, S, U) connections. With the Fernsehturm (TV Tower) and the late-afternoon autumn sun as backdrop, people assembling on the platform are waiting for their commute home on the trains. I think there’s a very interesting contrast between the weary workers in the foreground with the bright life-sustaining sun in the background. The photo above appears in my book “389: Transitory Impressions”.

I made the photos above on 13 November 2012. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-5Xx.
