Berlin - touring the city day + night

Flea markets are big in Berlin, so a visit to one is a must if you want to experience the true colours of the city. The day was gorgeous and we enjoyed lazing around the market. Here you can find literally anything from vintage bags to furniture. We didn’t purchase any vintage stuff but I did get this cool print T-shirt that I will share with you in the upcoming posts. We later visited the Charlottenburg Palace which is the largest palace in Berlin. In the evening we went on a walking tour of the city to experience the Festival of Lights which took place from the 12th until the 23rd of October. It was a unique experience to see Berlin’s most famous landmarks sparkle like jewels in the darkness of the night. I took two photos, which were not actually two as there is a lot of work that needs to be done before producing that final shot. The first photo is of the Berliner Dom and the second shot is of the Brandenburg Gate. Beautiful experience. xoxo ES

Street fashion Part 1- the reflection of Berlin

This is the selection of photos which I took of real people on the streets and I can definitely describe these shots as “individualism witnessed on the streets of Berlin”. There are no rules as to what shapes or colours or trends to wear, people express themselves in the most eccentric ways. People are free to wear whatever they like and feel confident with their looks. Enjoy and get inspired. xoxo ES

The Berlin Wall - Art that expresses hope for freedom

What remains today of the Berlin Wall which once was a physical division between the East and the West are only bits and pieces which remind the world of the bitterness of the Cold War and the suffering caused to thousands and thousands who attempted to either escape, fight for their freedom, visit loved once or were brutally killed attempting to cross the zone. Today we visited The Berlin Wall East Side Gallery which is a 1.3km-long section of the wall near the center of Berlin. Approximately 106 paintings by artists from all over the world, expressing great hopes for a free and better future for all cover this memorial for freedom and make it the largest open air gallery in the world. It was a really remarkable experience to visit this historical monument and although the passage of time tends to soften the outlines, the history of the Berlin Wall will continue marking the reality of the World War II.
