Berlin Humboldtforum: construction site night shots

Another night on the Humboldtforum construction site in Berlin.

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.

Another GIF, this time the chief of my favourite water hole at work
The chief of my favourite waterhole. Test run to put something new on his web site.

Berlin Ostkreuz 1994

I took this one with my Canon A1 in 1994, had it printed in 60×40 cm some years later, and as I was unable to find, let alone scan the negatives, I took a photograph of it with my Olympus C720 point-and-shoot. Not ideal, but sufficient for this web site. Some day I’ll find the negative, or have the print scanned…

But anyway, I love all the different types of clouds, those in the sky, the dust, and the soot leaving the chimney for the last time. The man in the foreground seems to interact with the collapsing chimney, but that is all coincidence. There was no time to set up any reasonable composition when the thing blew up..
