This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You’ve really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dare
“This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today
For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do

Weekly photo challenge – Names

Dem Deutschen Volke

“An Tagen wie diese
Wünscht man sich Unendlichkeit
An Tagen wie diese
Haben wir noch ewig Zeit.
In dieser Nacht der Nächte,
Die uns so viel verspricht.
Erleben wir das Beste
Kein Ende ist in Sicht.
Erleben wir das Beste
Und kein Ende in Sicht
Kein Ende in Sichtier”

Die Toten Hosen

Thursday Doors – Brandenburger Tor

Tor or gate?

This is a door.  One of the most famous doors in the World. But is it a door? The Branderburger Tor is a gate of course. But who cares? Germans don’t have humor. They say so themselve 🙂 So for this occasion the Brandenburger Tor is nothing more than a oversized door.

Weekly photo challenge – Nostalgia

silent sunday - first camera

From the DDR …

silent sunday - first camera

Surprise! I discovered my first camera, a Praktica, in a display in the DDR museum in Berlin. Never realized it was made in former East-Germany. But it worked fine and I still have good memories about it. Today I take my pictures with a Nikon D750 from Japan …

Monochrome Monday – 21

Shoes – made in the DDR

monochrome monday - shoes made in DDRI took this picture in the DDR museum in Berlin. A small but entertaining museum that gives an idea of life in the former DDR. Many of the objects shown are on the same level of design as there counterparts in ‘free world’. But, the winner takes it all.
