Guten Morgen to you all

Ohh I just had the most amazing time in Berlin! It seemed quite short, but I felt every minute was being captured.:) I marked in my memory every Graffiti scribble, the old interesting structures that hid a whole history between their walls, the colorful flea markets and the unbelievable worn out nostalgic objects they sell these days, and believe it or not, I won't forget the organic vegetarian culinary experience I managed to draw within their mountains of sausages. But that's a different story, as I'm going to have a whole different chapter for the veggie food adventure.
The photos I took mainly represent the instant inspirational vibes I was getting while looking at their graffiti and bold colors, the combination between old and new, painful history alongside contemporary hard shaped technological buildings.
I found their flea markets especially interesting as many families took out all of their old and unused toys, nostalgic books, retro clothes and furniture that no longer stand out for their functionality, but for their personal history.
There's nothing like a vacation which you feel like 'taking all in', enjoying the moment and everything your eyes manage to catch.:)

Hope you all enjoyed your week as well! *hugs*

It's sad but I didn't find the time to draw like I'm used to! I suppose all of the images and sights I took in would show up in future works.:)
