It was about a year ago, we returned from our family trip to Europe. I’m still working my way through the photos. Berlin holds a special place in my heart.
I had visited a divided Berlin for the first time in 1987. In fact, I took an old pair of Doc Martins that might have been on my feet on some of the very same streets in the 1980’s.
Though it was a family trip, I still try to shoot stock. Many of my photos would seem rather odd without taking stock photography into account.
Across from our crappy hotel (Hotel Alper, don’t go there) was this hip hats shop that made for some nice photos.
One of the first places I remember visiting in 1987 was this Soviet WWII memorial. One ironic twist was though the USSR occupied the Eastern part of Berlin, they controlled a few little spots in the west where this memorial in the Tiergarten lies.
