Blindfolded


I'm not sure who these people are and why their eyes have been "blindfolded", but it certainly gave me something to ponder when walking through my neighborhood recently. It's Monday again and you'll find more murals here.

Berlin crest


This mural showing the red bear from the Berlin city flag, was on the other side of the building where I found last week's mural. I do love that Berlin bear! It's Monday again and you'll find more murals here.

Obey and other signs


I recently learned that these Obey signs are the work of well-known street artist, Shepard Fairey. He's a South Carolina native, but built his street cred as a student at the Rhode Island School of Design with his Andre the Giant has a Posse campaign. If you're looking for them, you'll find these posters in cities all over the world (I've seen quite a few in Berlin, now that I know what they are!).

Fairey has come quite a way since his student days, his most famous work is probably the Obama campaign poster, but he's also built up a successful clothing line, simply called Obey. If you're interested in his work, you can see more here. And of course, you'll find more signs of all kinds at the weekly linkup, Signs, Signs.

Knight in shining armor


I found this knight, ready and willing to protect children at the playground, during a recent stroll through my neighborhood. A brave fellow, indeed! It's Monday again and you'll find more murals here.

Lone piano


This piano certainly looks like it's seen better days. I do like the contrast of its drab color against that red wall.

Marbles


A collection of marble sculptures inside the newly refurbished wing of the Schloss Charlottenburg. I recently saw a performance of Mozart's greatest hits in one of the upper rooms. It was a real treat to see the palace "after hours" and the musicians were really talented, especially the soprano. Hopefully there will be other performances to enjoy in the future!

Shadowy designs


Interesting designs seen on a sunny day at the Marheineke Markthalle in Kreuzberg. For more shadowy shots, head over to Shadow Shot Sunday.

Book box and bass


I found another book box when I was out and about recently. How serendipitous that this man with a double bass just happened to walk through my shot! It's Wednesday and you'll find more signs at Signs, Signs.

Political statement?


I'm sure this mural means something, I'm just not sure what. Mural lovers will find more street art at Monday Mural.

Blue skies in Kreuzberg


The beautiful, blue sky makes an excellent backdrop for the traditional red brick churches of Berlin.

Landscape


A scene from the golf course made more beautiful in black and white.

Heirlooms


I found these beautiful heirloom tomatoes irresistible! They were found during a recent trip to the Marheineke Markthalle in Kreuzberg.

Sweet, sweet coffee


There was something about this scene that caught my eye. I will have to go back and give Gizmo's a try the next time I'm in the neighborhood. It's Wednesday and more signs can be found here.

Egyptian influence


You'll find some visitors from North Africa in the Langhans Hall inside Schloss Bellevue. This room is used to receive visitors and where new ambassadors are formally received. 

I hope you've enjoyed this short tour of the Schloss Bellevue. If you're interested in seeing more, there is a brochure you can download here.

Dresden from the Left Bank


This painting of the Elbe in Dresden is by Italian artist Bernardo Bellotto. It is on display in the President's office in Schloss Bellevue. While each President has some freedom to decide which works will be displayed throughout the residence, this is one of the permanent works.
