Birds on the wing over Ibb, a town in Yemen. I was fortunate to visit this beautiful country in 1998.

Berlin Wall 30 years ago

On November 9 1989 the Berlin Wall opened. A few days later I happened to be in Berlin for a short holiday. The Wall was open. There was a an opening in the  Potsdamer Platz. A long row of people was waiting in the big empty space. On the east side the atmosphere was still spooky and depressing. The Wall had opened, but the  infrastructure that kept East-Germans inside was still there. The guards, the towers, the barb wire, the mines, the ‘no man’s land zone’, the spooky and unrealistic atmosphere of separation and repression. On the west side spirits were high; people were attacking The Wall to get memorabilia, tearing it down with hammers and chisels. There was the anticipation of change, everybody (including the press at the Brandenburger Tor) was waiting for The Big Opening. It was the principal press area for reporting from Berlin in those days. People selling t-shirts, buttons. Here an album of pictures of these days. Some I published earlier some are new.  I will never forget how it felt to walk through East-Berlin which was still in its old state. In a way I am happy I did that, before it all disappeared. I am looking forward to a long weekend in Berlin to visit these places again and going to one of the most vibrant cities in the world.

The theme for the weekly Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #70 is ‘monochrome’.
