Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, forty-six

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

11 November 2012.

On this day, it’s only been 23 years and 2 days since the Fall of the Wall in 1989. This short corridor once connected outgoing rail passengers passing through the gauntlet of checks and inquiries by East German guards inside the checkpoint. To those denied, the worded sign is cruel: “Departures ahead: long-distance trains, S-Bahn trains, U-Bahn trains.” I’m inside Berlin’s Tränenpalast, the so-called “Palace of Tears”. The image of the connecting corridor shows the short stretch within reach, blocked now by a sheet of glass. Beyond the transparent obstruction is entry into Friedrichstrasse train station.

I made the image on 11 Nov 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/40-sec, f/4.5, ISO800, 25mm focal length (40mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-mHK.

Fotoeins Friday in the Munich Metro: Westfriedhof

I highlight the interiors of four U-Bahn metro stations in Munich, Germany:

6 November – Georg-Brauchle-Ring,
13 November – Lehel,
20 November – Marienplatz, and
27 November – Westfriedhof.

The comings and goings at Westfriedhof station are apparent with this 1-second image. The train station serves U-Bahn lines U1 and U7, and is named for the adjacent 50-hectare (124 acres) cemetery in the western part of the city.

I made the above pictures between 22 February 2017 (IG) with a Canon EOS6D mark1 and the following settings: 1-sec, f/22, ISO500, and 24mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-ip7.

Fotoeins Friday in the Munich Metro: Marienplatz

I highlight the interiors of four U-Bahn metro stations in Munich, Germany:

6 November – Georg-Brauchle-Ring,
13 November – Lehel,
20 November – Marienplatz, and
27 November – Westfriedhof.

At the familiar orange that is Marienplatz, the U6 train has just departed for Klinikum Grosshadern. Marienplatz serves the U-Bahn U3 and U6 lines, and is also a major transfer hub for S-Bahn trains.

I made the above image on 23 February 2017 (IG1, IG2) with a Canon EOS6D mark1 and the following settings: 1-sec, f/22, ISO400, 28mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-ip4.

The above is a shot of the weekday morning 7am commute at Georg-Brauchle-Ring station which serves U-Bahn lines U1 and U7. I used this station to visit the ruins of the Olympiastadion ghost station and memorials to the massacre at the 1972 Summer Olympics.
