It’s been cold wet windy and nasty here in Berlin over the last few days, but that hasn’t kept your intrepid Photo Addict safe inside, away from the weather. No, braving the wind, rain and cold I set out to fulfill my need for symmetry in a series of urban landscapes.
One of many obvious places in the New Berlin for graphic straight lines is around Hauptbahnhof, where the architectural box theory is reigning in all its awful glory. When approaching the main train station on foot it is blindingly clear that in this vicinity the only curved sweeping lines is this piece of road. Other than this aberration this area is all anally straight lines and hard right-angled corners, all of which serves to be both photographically interesting and to dehumanise the landscape, which is an anomaly, because it is these structures that we humans create that reduce our place in the natural world.
All pictures were shot with the little Fujifilm x20.
