Berlin

Street ArtReliable Ryanair from Riga, Latvia to Berlin, Germany – a quick 1 hour 40 minute no-frill flight. Bill said it felt like a university outing because everyone was so young.

After the past week or so in winter fall was back in full force – greens, yellows, oranges and reds glistened outside the airplane’s window.  Teasing us with hopes of warmer weather.

We were greeted by a balmy 34 degrees.

I was anxious to get to Berlin, the capital city of the Cold War – Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, the Wall and the art/graffiti subculture pervasive on the East side.

When I hear “Berlin” – I hear Reagan, as if it was yesterday, saying “Gorbachov – tear down this wall” – I see, graffiti.

Bill thinks it has the most diverse new architecture of any world capital.

About Paige Shaw

Bitten by the wanderlust bug years ago - I have become an eyewitness to and documenter of the world’s divergent cultures (92 countries and counting). Photographing vistas that take my breath away, extraordinary architecture and connecting with everyday people doing everyday things. I am constantly reminded that a smile is the same in any language, that making a connection with something so simple is beautiful. Watching my photography transform from using a point and shoot in the old days to the new love of my life - the incredible Sony a7rii mirrorless camera - has inspired me to do more, take chances and seek out the unknown. I’m also a wife, mother, yogi, pilgrim, burner, skier, scuba diver and gypsy. “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ― Pablo Picasso

    You sure captured the beauty of this place with your camera. It is probably even more beautiful actually being there… I enjoy your photos-I feel like I am there traveling the world. Keep enjoying and being happy… xoxoxo
