Vanishing points

Today, as I uploaded a photo on Instagram, I realized I do a lot of perspective shots of streets. Especially since coming back to Berlin. It's kind of fun to go back and see the shots I've taken this autumn, the colours changing, the sky turning more grey. Not all of them are strictly symmetric, but I kind of like that. So I've made a little collection here for you;
 Ah, the bliss of summer light. This one is taken in my old street in Kreuzberg, Sorauer Straße. This was where I spent the first two months coming back to Berlin. Beautiful place.
 Sonnenallee traffic on a rainy August day.
 Lübbener Straße in Kreuzberg in all its green glory.
 Oppelner Straße in late September.
I moved from Kreuzberg to Charlottenburg in October. This is the view from the bus M29 going from my old part of town to the new.
A street in Wilmersdorf, October.
 Wilmersdorf, October.
 A slightly crooked view from S Savignyplatz, October.
 I believe this was taken in Kastanienallee, October.
 Obentrautstraße, October. This photo was taken on the way back from signing the contract of my apartment in Neukölln. When I see it, I can still feel the butterflies from that day flying around in my stomach.
 Herrfurthstraße in Neukölln, October. I love these altbau streets.
 Kirchhofstraße in Neukölln a gloomy November day. The trees are naked now.
 Elbestraße near my house. I imagine the double street to be very beautiful in the spring with its many trees.
 Last week, the sun shone over my little corner of town, and I soaked up the long shadows as if I'd never seen the sun before.
 Weserstraße, November. Berlin can look so sad in the winter.
And the photo from today, the beginning of December. I am so not feeling the Christmas spirit yet. I guess it won't kick in until I see my brothers in Denmark, oh I can't wait to see them!

Jeg bor selv i Berlin og er faldet over din blog via mit arbejde.
Jeg følger flittigt med og elsker stemningen i dine indlæg. Bliv ved, bliv ved :)

Julie: Åh hvor dejligt - velkommen til :) Håber, du får en god december i Berlin. Og er nysgerrig; hvad arbejder du med, siden du er faldet over min blog?

Jeg arbejder med online marketing. Vi samarbejder primært med modeblogs, men det er så dejligt, når jeg falder over nogle mere interessante blogs i min søgen :)
Håber du klarer sneen!

Julie: Heh, tak, det er jeg glad for at høre - og ja, jeg klarer sneen, har besluttet mig for bare at blive inde, indtil det stopper. God weekend!
