I have to admit, this is a heavily edited photo. I changed the colors a little bit, put some fancy filters, but in the end this helped me to show how this place felt: dark and dirty.
I took this photo in Berlin just a month ago. In my opinion, Berlin is – while its full of life and culture – one of the ugliest places to go in Germany. It is just horribly dirty, dark and filled with very strange people. One of the best ways to suck in this mesmerizing atmosphere is to go to the Berlin subway. While sometimes you will find nice looking stations (I’ll soon post some of these), it is more likely that you won’t. I mean, they shot the first Resident Evil movie down there. Do I have to say more?
I took this particular photo with my Samsung Galaxy S (on this trip to Berlin only one bum tried to steal it, yikes!) and then later edited it with Snapspeed, a pretty cool app that I recently discovered. It’s basically an Intragram that simply gives you a looot more options what to do with your picture. Wonder how you like it. Too much editing maybe?
