U Magdalenenstrasse, Berlin, Germany,

Fotoeins Friday: Heads bowed, Berlin Magdalenenstrasse

There’s something to be said about a coincidental convergence of colour, shape, and form. Granted, the figure in the foregound is likely in far better circumstances than the figures representing survivors in 1945. Sometimes, it’s better to be lucky than to be good. And sometimes, it’s been said the dead have found themselves fortunate.

I made the photo above on 13 November 2012 with the Canon EOS450D camera, EF-S 18-55 II kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/10s, f/5, ISO400, and 18mm focal length (29mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at as

BVG U-Bahn, Bahnhof Zoologischer Garten, Berlin, Germany,

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 as

Berlin Gleisdreieck: winter vs. summer

Gleisdreieck (“railway triangle”, “triangular junction”) is a U-Bahn train- and junction-station at the western end of the Kreuzberg district in the German capital city of Berlin.

The station has both upper-level and lower-level platforms serving lines U1 and U2, respectively, although both sets of track are raised above ground. At Gleisdreieck, the U1 line runs west-east, whereas the U2 line runs perpendicularly and temporarily “north-south”.
