Looking out

I somehow like the unfocused frame I got from looking out onto the Köllnischer Park at the Märkisches Museum. I've been searching through my recent photos and archives to come up with something suitable for tomorrow's theme. Hope you'll stop by to take a look. Until then, enjoy your weekend!

Odd setup

It's nice that the museum has offered these benches as a place to rest, but this room was totally empty. I'd much rather sit in a place where you can at least contemplate the artwork on the walls. I also find the placement of that church thingie (technical term) and the spotlight somewhat random. 

It's Friday again! Do you have any big plans for the weekend? I'll be out on the golf course and hopefully will also have some time to get out and about for some pictures of the gorgeous fall weather we've been having. Whatever you have planned, I hope you enjoy it!

Meet Sam

This is a bust of the famed law reformer, Samuel von Cocceji. Under the Prussian King Frederick the Great, he made reforms to the law and judicial process which helped lay the foundations for modern German law. The museum finds him so cool, he got this special place of honor under one of the rose-style windows. You can read more about Sam here.

Another crest

I don't know who or what this crest belongs to, but I like it! I hope it counts as a sign. You'll find more of them at Signs, Signs.

Towards the light

I had always wanted to visit the Märkisches Museum, if only to see the architecture from the inside. It is such an interesting building with interesting exhibits inside too! Won't you come inside and take a look...

A bear and his shield

This week I'm taking you on a tour of the Märkisches Museum. You may remember I showed you Big Roland who stands guard outside the museum awhile back. After walking by this museum so many times, I finally visited last June on the free day. It was surprisingly interesting and would definitely be a good choice for families with older kids. It mainly showcases the history of the city of Berlin. And of course, Berlin wouldn't be complete without its bear! This guy even has his own shield, though I'm don't believe I've seen that crest before.
PS: Sorry for the long absence. I got back from Israel last week, but wasn't feeling well enough to sit in front of the computer. I think things are getting better, hope you haven't missed your daily dose of Berlin too much!

Reflections on the 18th

I hope you enjoy this look at the golf course today. Unfortunately, I think my Friday afternoon rounds are a thing of the past now. But there's always next year! I'm off to Israel early tomorrow morning, but I'll be back towards the end of the month. I'll have plenty of pictures to show on my return, I'm sure. If you can't wait until then, check out my Instagram feed or follow me on Facebook. Until then, you can see more reflections here and more skies here.

Fall in Berlin

A look at the Rudolph-Wilde Park in Schoneberg. I love it when the leaves start to turn.

The Telespargel

Being greeted by the Telespargel against a blue sky is a wonderful sight when climbing out of the U-Bahn. I tried many different angles, but I liked this one the best. There are ruins of an actual cloister at Klosterstrasse. I should get back there one of these days to get some shots of it. Until then, you'll find more signs at Signs, Signs.

ETA: The real name of the structure is simply the TV Tower. However, due to its shape, many people call it the Telespargel (Tele-asparagus).


Grave of an unknown soldier found in my local cemetery.

Do you like it better in black and white or color?

One eyed lady

A one-eyed lady as seen in Kreuzberg. It's Monday again and you'll find more murals at Monday Mural.

Reunited... and it feels so good!

Happy German Unity day! Last year marked 25 years since The Wall fell and today is the 25th anniversary of a reunited Germany. There will be lots of celebrating going on and hopefully I will make it to the fireworks show at the Brandenburg Gate tonight. Hope you also have some nice plans for the weekend!


There are two things I'm crazy for, golf and coffee. Ok, there are probably more than just two things... 

Hope you enjoy this bit of reflection. For more, take a look at Weekend Reflections.

October theme day: Shelter

For this month's theme day, we're off to the golf course. These shelters on the driving range mean that you can practice your swing, no matter what the weather (some of them even have heaters).

As you can see, there are quite a few huts - so there's plenty of room for everyone. 

It's hard to believe October is already here! I'll be traveling to Israel this month and I'm very excited. I hope you've got something to look forward to as well. Don't forget to stop by the CDP site for more takes on Shelter. You'll find them here.
