Berlin on 35mm Photo Diary

8 July 2017



All I did for the whole of June was repeat that I couldn't believe how fast the year had gone, and then how old I felt that I kept saying it (the fact that I was about to reach the grand old age of 25 was probably also playing its part in that second one). But I honestly can't believe it. It seems like only a few weeks ago that I was preparing to pack up all my things and make an exciting and terrifying  move across the country. Really I'd just been a bit naive and moving my entire life took a bit longer than I'd expected. Even though Liverpool already felt like home, actually making my flat into a home, getting used to a new job and figuring out how to keep in touch with my old friends hundreds of miles away took a lot of time and effort and really didn't leave much time for anything else.

So Dave and I decided to begin the second part of the year with a much needed trip away. It also doubled as a bit of a birthday and anniversary celebration as we marked five years together last month and have never been on a proper holiday together. The idea came to us very last minute, but I had a few days booked off from work at the end of June and after a bit of browsing some holiday websites we chose a 2 day city break in Berlin for our first adventure.

Because we didn't have much time to plan, we didn't really know what we were going to do in Berlin but we had the most amazing time once we got there. We spent most of the two days just walking the streets of the city looking at all the landmarks, the architecture and stopping for the odd coffee and beer along the way. We had a stroll along the East Side Gallery, took some photos in a photoautomat, became total pros at using the local trains and even found a veggie currywurst to try (I was so happy I took a photo with it that you can see below, the vendor thought it was hysterical and probably that I was a bit mad).

I feel like we managed to cram so much into just 48 hours there so instead of trying to write it all down I thought I'd share some of the photos I took during the trip on one of my little 35mm cameras. The weather wasn't amazing during all of our trip but I was still quite pleased with the photos and I think the film has such a nice quality to it. Let me know what you think and if you have any recommendations for places we should visit next!
