a photo a day from germany's capital city
A definite treasure!
It looks lovely against the cloudy skies.
Appropriate in black and white. Strange- sometimes it seems like it's been ages and other times, as you say, not that long ago.
Black and white serves the image well.
So recent in history yes, Friend
A thought provoking image as always. Mimi
Quite an emotional photograph.
I still remember when we climbed the stairs of the viewing tower to glimpse over the wall to the "other" side. So close and yet so different. A very poignant picture
A great shot in b/w. It´s full of atmosphere!
Very poignant - in B&W adds to the emotion effectiveness of the cross.Visiting from Tom's Tuesday TresauresHave a great day!
Nice B&W shot.
I agree with other comments. B&W makes a difference to the scene.
This shot looks very much like it was taken in the 60s. A scary time, but even scarier is to realize that what happened then could happen again in the U.S.
You are so right. It wasn't long ago at all. I was reminded of those crazy times when I watched the movie "Bridge of Spies" recently.
I remember the wall and seeing reports of daring escapes. There have always been too many walls in the world and now many Americans want to build more. Thanks for sharing and please return again.
It's a perfect photo! It wasn't long time ago, but many seem to forgot.
All of these memorials really touch me. This one at the wall is especially touching. Those poor souls separated from their families is just heartbreaking. My daddy was in the first World War and I went to Europe to see the cemeteries and try to learn some of the history first hand but I never got to Germany. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful piece with us...it is especially pretty in black and white.
A wonderfully simple cross.
I'd say don't forget...
Beautiful in B&W.
A perfectly simple memorial.Dianahttp://adifferentlenslens365.blogspot.co.nz/2016/02/52-george-street.html
A memorial to which victims? Have not seen this cross while we were living in Berlin. So full of meaning and emotions - beautiful!
A memorial to those who tried to escape the DDR by going over, under or around the wall.
The people in your shot give an interesting sense of scale. I'm glad that history is memorialized.
Super dramatique composition of the memorial Hal.
Very profound shot. The bw really added to the feel of your photo.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I love hearing from you!
