Today is my day off so I spent the rest of the morning copying holiday pics from Mark’s photo card. Here are some more from Germany:
In Potsdamer Platz. During the time of the Berlin Wall, from 1961-1989, Potsdamer Platz was a no-man’s land. It has now been built up with some remarkable looking skyscrapers.
The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. There are 2711 concrete slabs of varying heights. Some slabs are flush with the ground and some are over four metres tall. The pathway gridwork is not level; as you can see in this photo the path might take on a rollercoaster trail. It is not recommended to run while at this memorial, as the strict gridwork offers no peripheral sightlines and collisions are a certainty if you don’t slow down, which is no doubt the intention of the artist. Mark wanted to take a picture of an unobstructed pathway when all of a sudden a little girl scooted into the frame.
