I’ve driven past the Church on Hollenzollernplatz many a time, so I’ve always seen it looking pretty much like it does here.
I also just learned from Wikipedia that it is an example of Brick Expressionism along with the Anzeigerhochhaus in Hannover (about the only interesting thing in all of Hannover….) I most definitely have to find a time to go inside and see these stained glass windows.
Last Friday I cycled out to Charlottenburg to visit a friend. When riding back to Kreuzberg I passed by the church in the evening spring sun and took these pictures. Nothing like a little Berlin inspiration while out and about.
The Earth’s Moon was caught just above the horizon in a young crescent phase. The familiar Moon might look a bit odd as the exposure shows significant Earthshine — the illumination of the part of the Moon hidden from direct sunlight by the sun-reflecting Earth. Also captured in the image is the bright planet Venus on the right. Venus and Jupiter passed only three degrees from each other last week during a photogenic planetary conjunction. The above image was taken two days ago near Madrid, Spain.
