Philippines – building a dirt road

dirt road across a small valley

In order to provide access to a source for soil to cover a dumpsite, this road was built across a small valley. Unfortunately, the planner failed to notice a little stream at the bottom of the valley. After a few days of moderate rainfall (for the Philippines), the street had turned into a dam. The water level rose by approximately 3 m over the last weekend, now eroding the road.

A culvert made from a few metres of simple concrete pipe would have avoided this.

Berlin Humboldtforum: construction site night shots (I)

Some night shots from the Humboldtforum construction site in Berlin, experimenting with ISO speed ratings of 3200, 6400 and 12800 using Magic Lantern alternative firmware for my CANON EOS 500D.

Humboldtforum Berlin

I just spent a few days on one of the major construction sites in the touristy city centre of Berlin. These are a few of the not-so-usual photos of this area I managed to take during work.
