These days we spent some time in the area around Potsdamer Platz. It is a tourist area and if you’re not sightseeing or going to museums you would never wander into this part of the city, especially if you live in Berlin. However, one of my favourite museums here in Berlin, the Martin Gropius Bau, is close to Potsdamer Platz, which is why we were there. This picture was taken in the S-Bahn station Potsdamer Platz and fits perfectly in my down below series. Low ceilings, bright lights, shiny surfaces, that’s what attracts me to taking pictures in the underground stations of the U-Bahn and S-Bahn.

    • Thanks Robert! The colours and the lights were definitely what inspired me to take the picture. It’s as if the professional lighting was already provided by the architect of the station.

  3. I really like these reflections, too! And the illuminated tops on those columns are wild! Incredible how much differently this scene would feel without them!
