Picturing History

It being both bright and sunny, I thought I would treat myself to a major Berlin tourist destination, the Brandenburger Tor; after all, tourist locations are usually the historically interesting parts of a city.  But, and this is a big but, I don’t really like crowds and as a consequence I went early before the hordes arrived in force.

It was nice, I enjoyed the sun, shot lots of frames and as Pariser Platz began to fill I left and wandered home through Tiergarten. I live within walking distance of the Tor, but rarely go to look at it, a phenomenon I expect is common with residents of a city with lots of tourists.
