Smile, Berlin! (WPC)

Visitors and residents come out of Berlin’s Zoo Station (Zoologischer Garten) and into late-autumn afternoon sunshine. Some smile automatically while on the phone with their family or their partners. Some laugh at something funny the other person has said. I think the smiley faces are all about a reflection of that big bright shining globe in the sky.

Fotoeins Friday: Zoo Station, Berlin Hardenbergplatz

5 December 2012.

With two months of stay in the German capital as the final stage of my year-long RTW, it’s easy to get to know the place, especially if there’s an extensive network of trains, trams, and buses. Like many in west Berlin, I’m frequently at or through the junction that is Zoologischer Garten train station, commonly known as “Zoo Station”. I’ve this vantage point across Hardenbergplatz square, facing northwest to the train station.

During my year-long RTW, I made this photo on 5 December 2012 with the Canon 450D, 18-55 kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/250-sec, f/5, ISO200, and 27mm focal length (43mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-aiF.

Fotoeins Friday: Berlin’s familiar yellow blur (U-Bahn, Zoo Station)

The familiar yellow streams through the underground; the familiar sounds of the train wheels clic-clacking over the tracks coming into place, as a train pulls into the station. These are Berlin’s U-Bahn trains, and I’m standing on the “U2 to Pankow” platform at Zoologischer Garten train station. The station is home to U-Bahn1 lines U2 and U9; S-Bahn lines S5, S7, and S75 (as part of the east-west Stadtbahn line); and to various regional trains throughout the Berlin-Brandenburg area.

1 Sometimes the U2 is called the U12 during construction periods along the east-west lines.

I made this photo above on 30 November 2014 with the Canon 6D, EF 24-105 L IS zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/4s, f/8, ISO500, and 28mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-6Cn.
