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.

Berlin weather in February: dark clouds and sunny skies.
Berlin sidewalks are not in the best condition. And that can be a good thing. On Valentine’s Day I found this heart shaped gap in the cobbled paving near Arkonaplatz. How nice is that? And of course took a photo of it.

Wanted: more Berlin streetart!
Nowadays it’s quite a bit difficult to find streetart in Berlin. Of course compared to other cities you may think that there is a lot art in the streets of Berlin, but compared to what was going on only 10 years ago the current situation is a bit sad.
But nevertheless – here and there and everywhere you’ll still be able to find more or less nice pieces of streetart. Sometimes even in layers. Like in this photo: “GESUCHT”
