Remember back in November when I was in Paris and I didn’t blog at all? One of the reasons was because right when I got back from London, I got an email from my editor at the New York Times seeing if I could shoot a story in Berlin for the Home and Garden section 3 days later. Turns out Berlin is only about an hour and a half flight from Paris and since I will basically say yes to anything that involves taking a plane, I was on board. I had other plans in France before I came back to LA so I couldn’t spend more than 24 hours there. It was beautiful, it was cold and it got dark really early. I loved it.
According to my cab rides, it was definitely fall. The leaves were totally incredible.
I was shooting a co-op building project in berlin’s mitte neighborhood by architects and partners Christoph Roedig and Uli Schop. They greeted me with this breakfast spread and I loved them immediately. It didn’t hurt that their space was amazing, either.
After we went up to the roof to take in the views of the city, they took me into one of the other units. I snapped a couple of photos. The light was perfect. I also got a nice view of the back common space.
And then I was done, the light was golden and I had a couple of hours before my flight. I went for a walk.
