The Scharmützelsee which is situated near Berlin is a very good destination for mini-breaks or day trips and a good opportunity to let it all hang out. Little snacks and a few rays of sunlight helped me to travel back to my childhood.
The state of Brandenburg is very famous for its numerous and beautiful lakes – especially the region south east of Berlin. One of them is the “Scharmützelsee” which is a one hour drive away from the German capital (by car or train).
As a child I spent my whole summer holidays at the beaches of this lake. Last year I returned to this region in the very beginning of spring. I hadn’t been there for a long time but could recall a lot of places and memories (you know, all the children stuff…). The few indications for the upcoming warm season add to my short childhood-flashback-trip.
The villages Bad Saarow and Windisch Rietz are situated directly next to the lake. Because of its character as a health resort Bad Saarow is a bit quiet and expensive. You’ll find a more casual atmosphere in Windisch Rietz.
There are a lot of opportunities to catch a little snack at the lake shore such as a typical German Bratwurst or a tasty ice cream cornet.
A road trip is a celebration of little freedoms. It’s a chance to break out of a rut and to be a little unruly. All the mischief may be off limits to the camera, so the things we do photograph need to serve our memory well: They must convey the relief, fun and color of our secret sprees.
Speak of South Korea and, chances are, the bustling capital city Seoul and the charming island of Jeju would be the first destinations to come to mind—and for very good reasons.

Everything about a person can be read upon the sight of his face -- the squint of eyes, turn of lips or raise of brows immediately paint one's feelings like an open book; but these elements are shrouded in English photographer Toby Harvard's portraiture.
