East Side Gallery – Fenced

The showers started again whilst we were at Suicide Circus and so we decided to head back over the railway lines. Despite the wet and cold, we consoled ourselves that Berlin in winter could be a lot worse! Fortunately, the showers did not linger and when we passed the train station towards East Side Gallery…

On the way to East Side Gallery

After the last post on sculpture, we saw another one on the way to the train station and this time, there was a lot more to like. Looking like two interlocking but broken chains, we were interested to learn that this one is actually called “Berlin”. They are created by the husband and wife team…

Photo 101: Street

Hosier lane in Melbourne city which is full of everchanging street art. The lane is narrow so it was almost impossible to pull back to take in the entire view. Hopefully this captures the thought. By the way, Hosier lane is also home to Movida. One of the top restaurants in Melbourne serving exquisite spanish…

Blogging 101: Introductions!

Who I am and Why I’m Here By any stretch of the imagination, last year was a tough one for me. I felt almost overwhelmed and truth be told, quite downtrodden. So, instead of retreating into my shell which I often do, I decided to venture out instead. To get out of my comfort zone.…
