Impressions: Berlin close up

Graffiti is ubiquitous in Berlin, some of it good, some not. This wall painting of a boy is quite striking, despite -- or maybe because of -- the mustache that was added later.

Berlin is a big city.

It is not only Germany’s most populous city, but the capital — from Spandau district in the west to Köpenick in the east — takes up a lot of real estate.

There is a lot to see. Monuments and statues, art and architecture, and of course the people.

Because it is so big, one would think that you need to take a step back to take it all in.

But perhaps it is going in for a close up — whether taking a few steps up or using a camera’s telephoto lens — that shows Berlin in all its diversity.
