Another City

All big cities are the same?170901 - Leica IIIa - Lomo Lady Grey (22)

All are agglomerations of people living in close proximity, as good as they can!

The same?

Not entirely!

After my little trip to København, I thought about another city trip I took not too long ago. A trip to Berlin, and a trip that left entirely different impressions.170901 - Olympus XA2 - Lomo Lady Grey (30)-2

Less color, unless you count grey as a color! Less relaxed feeling and people seeming much more stressed out and in a hurry.

Why is this?

Of course I did not see all of København, and I certainly did not see all of Berlin. And I might as well apologise to the Berliners for this impression I got of their city.

Anyways, the contrast was very great!170901 - Olympus XA2 -Fuji Superia 200 (13)

In Denmark’s capital I did not see such buildings, such proximity. All seemed more human sized, a bit like a supercharged Luxembourg City but with a port.170901 - Olympus XA2 - Lomo Lady Grey (31)-2

Of course, as I said, I might be entirely off here, but both cities left completely different feelings.

Nothing in common, or not much.170901 - Olympus XA2 -Fuji Superia 200 (19)

Even the color photos don’t show the same brilliance and happy vibes as the more northern counterpart. At least the way I processed them and expressed my feel of the views.

Anyways, both cities are certainly worth a visit… but I have my preference.170901 - Olympus XA2 - Lomo Lady Grey (8)-2

I’m really sorry, Berlin!170901 - Olympus XA2 -Fuji Superia 200 (15)

Thanks again for stopping by, folks!

  1. I went to Berlin last September and found it quite relaxing, I thought it had quite a chilled out vibe, but then I live in London!
