Many of the images are from a 2011 visit to Germany – to Berlin and nearby cities – details of which are in my Grand Tour blog. Inevitably the images from the trip tend to be travel pictures, documenting the places themselves, rather than ‘arty’ photos that can be put on display or used in competitions. But visiting a new location always provides a stimulus for various types photography, and I hope I’ve managed to pull out some unusual views and make something of them.
In particular I spent time at the huge and controversial Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, where I found it possible – and perhaps necessary – to separate the shapes of the blocks from the buzz of modern life going on around them; more thoughts with the larger images. All photos taken on the Nikon D300, mostly using the Nikkor 18-200mm VR zoom; technical details of each with the larger images (click thumbnails to see them).
