A couple of weeks ago I travelled to Berlin to meet two of my friends who had flown in from the UK for a weekend getaway. It was a lovely break and it was really fun to do some sightseeing in another city. (Dresden, I love you, but it’s been a while.) I’ve always loved Berlin – it has such a cool vibe, very different to Dresden – and it was nice to do some of the things that I missed the last time I was there. Highlights included a walking tour which is definitely a good idea for anybody wanting to see a lot in a short amount of time, the Jewish Museum, and finding a cute cafe for breakfast on our final morning in a district a little outside of the city centre.
I have to admit that I wasn’t particularly happy with the photos I took, and that is probably why it’s taken me so long to put them up here. It was partly the lighting (the lighting, always blame the lighting), but it was mainly because my friend’s amazing DSLR completely showed up my poor humble bridge camera up at every opportunity. There’s nothing more disheartening than trying to capture the same view, but finding that your photo is about a hundred times worse than somebody else’s. I managed to rectify a few, however, with some editing, and I’ve heard a rumour on the grapevine about a secondhand DSLR coming my way for Christmas. My bridge camera has been amazing for the last couple of years, but I’ve definitely outgrown it, and it will be exciting to move onto newer, bigger, photography adventures. I’m looking forward to seeing exactly what 2015 will bring.
