The German Parliament Building, enjoy walking around and be amazed of the structure and combination of a modern and old architecture.
I was here last November on Holiday with my girlfriend, we saw many sites in Berlin including this one. There is a lot of History to this building as it was built in 1893. It was set on fire in 1933 and was left in ruins until it was fixed with the help of Norman Foster. He put the glass dome on the top.
The line to get in was really long so we walk around the outside admiring this building and the complex around it. There is a really cool mix of new and old architecture that houses the German political machine and it is worth walking around to see the juxtaposition of styles and materials used in these buildings.

Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
In photography, we notice the surface first. The color and texture of things help us imagine what’s beneath. Doors, part of a building’s skin, have this appeal. They suggest how long a structure has been around and what sort of fellows live inside. They are details that fascinate Lomographers, judging from the many LC-A 120 snaps of intriguing entrances.
Autochrome was one of the first strides toward color photography. The combination of potato starch grains and silver bromide produces a cloudy cast that makes buildings like Villa Bonnier look even more intriguing.

A building is a story of collective effort. The people who dreamed it up and polished every surface are anonymous to many, but their work announces a unique identity. For tourists, architecture is a marker of place, like souvenirs with flags and national costumes. For the camera-lugging traveler, a strong visual statement is what matters most.
This article is dedicated to Serge Moulinier, a largely unknown French photographer who won one of the most important prizes in France with a book on Greek architecture.
