day 123: all that love

I took this picture on the Christmas market next to the Gedächtniskirche after we signed the contract of our new big flat. It’s about double the size of my old flat and I really like it. The owners are doctors and apparently they have so much money that they can afford to own 160 flats in Berlin. We signed the contract in their doctor’s office and they are just the type you imagine when you hear this little fact about the number of flats they own. Hard to describe, but these are the kind of people who don’t really care how much money they spend. There is a nice probably very expensive built-in kitchen in the flat with all the perks which illustrates exactly this fact. Strange what kind of people you meet when you’re looking for flats.

And the Christmas market was great for taking pictures. I took many good ones, but I liked this one the best. Of course everything they sold would have been poison for me, but these stalls are still great to look at. I really liked how the bright colourful sweets contrast with the facial expression of the girl selling them.

    • I see you already found the information, here some more: Canon EOS 450D with the 18-55mm kit lens attached, shot in RAW. I only sharpened it a bit and adjusted the levels. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  8. It’s a good thing I don’t work there
    (I’d be tempted to try at least one of everything).
    Great capture, Ms. F!
