“Berlin´s the new Paris” I was recently told. But I think it has it´s very own charme. Show off your photos of a modern, historical or simply color crazed capital city!
Here ´s another great opportunity to have your photo up on an official, giant Lomowall! Introduce Berlin from your perspective and soon there will be a Berlin Lomowall that will be a mecca for Berliners and world travelers alike. Be a part of it! Submit your photos now!
So here’s what we’re looking for:
- Portraits of typical Berlin People, but don’t hold back on the freaks!
- Shots of typical landmarks – Brandenburg Gate , Parliament, Berliner Stadtschloss, TV tower, Alexanderplatz, Rotes Rathaus (City Hall), Neptunbrunnen, Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, The Rathaus Schöneberg, where John F. Kennedy made his famous “Ich bin ein Berliner!” speech,… show us around!
- Berlin fireman, police, security men, other people in uniforms – let us see Berlin’s finest in all their glory!
- Typical Berlin shop facades – the face of the city. Ku’Damm, Tauentzienstraße, …
- Berlin Nightife and Music – from the Berlin State Opera to the world famous Kitkatclub – what´s a typical night in Berlin alike?
- Berlin construction – Building by building, the city is always changing, and we want to see how it’s happening!
- Berlin East and West – for 28 years the city was divided by a wall. Is that town still separated into East and West 20 years after the wall fell?
- Berlins traffic – Subway, “S-Bahn”, Cabs, and a whole lot of cars. How do people in Berlin get from A to B
- Photo formats – Landscape, square, Horizon
