Berlin: a collective

Wednesday, March 9, 2011











Lugging my camera around my neck, a map or two in tow. Locals/Passers-by chatting away; they always sound interesting but I don't understand a word ~can't register~ with just body language to help interpret the conversation they could be having. Street signs, shop windows are just much more curious when covered in words I can't decipher. Walking down the street. Thrifting in the markets. Seeing artworks in the museums and the squares. I miss the feeling of being in a foreign city.

Bought a huge box of tomatoes from the market on Sunday. Been making bottles and bottles of sauce & chutney ever since. I think I'm obsessed with the idea of stocking up or bottling. Be it tomato sauce, tomato chutney or the kimchi I made last month. Which reminds me, we're running out.

1.Silverware. 2.Accordian. 3.Gems. 4.Giant bubble-bubbles. 5.Nose and mouth sculpture in Neues Museum.6.Hairpin collection. 7.Mauerpark. 8.Ancient scripts. 9.Installation in Alexanderplatz. 10.Lego men.

What magical photos!

The silverware is my fave.

Isn`t it amazing how things make a whole new impression / become something different when they`re piled up!?

They lose their individuality but what do they gain?

I love trinkets. Especially when they're foreign. I love those egg-like dangling things. Home decor inspiration! haha Wouldn't mind those bouncing off my walls.

+ thanks for stopping by! I am currently indulging in your photographic adventures :)
