Blurring Lines:

Emily at Rosenthaler Platz U-Bahn station

Pic 1: This is a nice picture of Emily at Rosenthaler Platz U-Bahn station, along with the train coming onto the platform behind her. The long exposure means a nice blurry train, but also a slightly blurry Emily in the foreground. One of my favourites this time, but perhaps would be better on less grainy Ilford film (as in the last roll).

Rosenthaler Pl. at night time, with car headlampsPic 2: Rosenthaler Platz from St Oberholz, again with the issue that it was a long exposure and thus slightly blurry overall. The car headlamps streaming across the centre of the picture, and the lines on the road, are a satisfying pattern nonetheless.

Pic 3: Norweger Straße, the street along which the Wall ran. This is more a German-language convoluted joke. That the Wall used to be on this street and that there is a sign stating Keine Wendemöglichkeit is amusing but requires too much explanation here, I think!Norweger Straße, near home

    I actually like the blurriness of the train picture, and the fact that my hair is being kind of blown forward by the train. Good leading lines, too. Maybe you need a tripod next…

    Also, the picture of Rosenthaler Platz is awesome because it seems (to me) that you never really get that view of an intersection… Seems like I never have that high vantage point with enough of a wide angle to really see the whole thing. Anyway, blurry traffic lights are fun.
