I start my new photo blog with the film festival Berlinale. It is a big event for the city an brings lots of visitors to Berlin.

I must admit I don’t go very often to the movies but I like the atmosphere during one of the largest public film festivals in the world. Find all the information on the Berlinale Website

I’m living in Berlin since 2001 and over the years I took many photos. But in recent years I have neglected my hobby photography a bit. Beside photos I will take walks through the city and I want to do a special project this year. I would like to take “now and then” photos, using historical photos as “templates”.

I have never tried this before but I would like to see the city with a “historic eye” and learn more about the city.

This is the reason why I start my blog with a Berlinale post.

One of the reasons I have never been to one of the films during the festival are these long queues. I don’t want to get up early in the morning to wait for hours to get tickets. And I don’t have time to do so with my full time job. But this is one of the “attractions” of the film festival. People queue at several places but the most famous one is this in the shopping centre “Potsdamer Platz Arkaden.”
