The view from Lindenstrasse near the crossing Lindenstrasse / Oranienstrasse / Kochstrasse in Kreuzberg towards the TV-Tower / Alexanderplatz on a sunny day in mid-sptember.
Due to the Corona virus many many places, venues and locations had to close down for quite a while. Also the language school in Kastanienallee was temporarily closed – as was the food stand in front of the school and the sign next to it.
The Oderberger Strasse streches rather exactly from East to West . This means the sun rises on the one end of the street and sets on the other – towards Mauerpark.
Another photo taken from Ackerstrasse facing towards Invalidenstrasse / Mitte / TV Tower. The rather unspectacular Berlin Skyline as it is seen from this very spot.
Luckily some dark clouds add a little bit of drama to the view on this otherwise rather sunny day.
Another photo of the beautiful bell tower of Zionskirche in Berlin Mitte – and the as well beautiful evening sky. Warm Berlin summer nights can be so nice.
Living in Berlin you may be quite familiar with this image. Sometimes the containers at your local glass waste collection point could not get emptied in time – but of course people keep leaving bottles and jars at the collection point. So things begin to pile up. And I must admit that I also wouldn’t want to carry the bags full of glass waste back home.
After a while a colorful ‘carpet’ of empty bottles and jars surrounds the containers.
During these strange Corona times the local glass waste collection point also offers another layer of communication. At least you can see that some people are have ‘fun’ somehow, some time, some where.
After taking this photo the glass carpet at this collection pint kept growing for a few more days – but I somehow could not be bothered to take another and yet another photo. Now I kind of regret not documenting the situation. Next time I will.
