On that day I had an appointment with a friend of a friend of mine. Hang is a designer living in Shanghai, and when I heard that she was passing through Berlin, I thought this would be an excellent opportunity to get to know her. I was thinking for a while now to have a small logo for my photography, and I was wondering if she could design one for me. We meet for a coffee, and we spent a great time chatting about travelling, photography, ice cream. I was delighted that I had my camera with me ( just in case 🙂 ) so I could make a picture of her. And now I’m curious and looking forward to seeing my logo for the first time.
My phone started to ring, and I was trying to get it from my bag when I got distracted by these two great women. Colourful hair, dinosaurs as earrings, vibrant spirit. I forgot the phone and walked up to them to ask them for a photo. They were so, and I got really fascinated with their happy energy.
I was happy when I woke up and saw a cloudy sky. I knew that this is my perfect day for taking pictures. This is my little schizophrenia because usually, a bright blue sky is one of these things that make me happy.
But for taking pictures, a cloudy sky makes for better light.
I was hoping to run in some interesting people whom I can ask for a photo and when I saw this tremendous bright orange cap I knew this is it. The woman who was wearing it was beautiful and, and I was enjoying the shoot.
Finally the day I was looking forward to for such a long time. My best friend Veronika who lives in Czech was going to visit me once again. It’s always a high occasion when she visits. She has two children and is busy with work so she can only visit me two times per year.
When she comes to Berlin, we already have our habits like having Turkish breakfast by Simitdchi or a going on a bus trip on the M29 while chatting about life and eating frozen yoghurt even when is very cold outside. We also love drinking beer in Prinzengarten, and the very first thing she does when she comes to visit is to go to her favourite shop the COS store. And because Veronika is a beautiful woman who bought gorgeous COS dress and I happen to love taking pictures of beautiful women in beautiful dresses. I had to ask her for a photo:-)
I was hanging out at Tempelhofer Feld with friends watching the world cup on the big screen. One of the best places in Berlin to chill out and do whatever you like. Because of this well-known fact, it wasn’t a surprise that it was too packed to see the screen. So we couldn’t see the game at all. It didn’t bother us though. We had fun chatting and from time to time we were trying to catch a glimpse of the screen over the heads of all the people. I only brought my small camera with me, and when this woman who was a friend of a friend, whom I didn’t know before, sat with us, I instantly regretted not bringing my “professional” camera with me. She was amazing. A stylish hat and fabulous sunglasses. But when she turned, and I saw this tattoo I had to take a picture for my blog even with my small camera.
It was just a short moment this guy had to stop at the traffic lights, and this was my moment. I jumped at him and asked him if I could take a snap of him. He stayed so calm and so relaxed as he had been doing it all his life. I had few seconds to get this picture. And I’m glad I did! He was just so confident and completely cool on his bike with his Lennon sunglasses.
