~buildings & trees~

September 26th, 2009


I’ve noticed what seems to catch my picture-making fancy these days are buildings and trees.


There are variations, naturally: leaves and seeds, lobbies and porticos, clouds and fish and water. Atmosphere permitting, the true subject is always light, but practically speaking, mostly it’s buildings and trees, and today is no different.

The building in question is the U-Bahn station at Rathaus Schöneberg, which is topped with Triton abducting a nymph, and nestled among the weeping trees of Rudolph Wilde Park.

Rathaus Schöneberg (both the name of the U-Bahn stop and the building behind it, city hall for the borough of Tempelhof-Schöneberg) is where Kennedy made his famous doughnut speech: “Ich bin ein Berliner.” And that’s all I’m going to say on the subject as I have some book plotting and scheming to do yet today.
