Nature and Landscapes
Urban and City
As a coastal city, Sorrento (Italy) has dozens of beaches. I was there off-season, so there were no tourists at all - and in the evenings, some locals would gather along the coast and simply fish into the sunset.
It must be pretty amazing and soothing to be able to just walk to the beach in 10 min and then fish for an hour into sunsets such as this one. Some fisherman were alone, some in small groups, but there was no talk or chatter - only the water moving along the stones. I even felt like the noise my camera shutter made was too loud in this situation, so I just took some pictures and then decided to leave them in peace. I am sure there are enough months in the year where tourists make scenes like this simply impossible.
New York is a crazy city for me - I got lost more than once, it is too much to see to even try to plan everything properly... but it also has so many little gems hidden away from plain sight.
This tunnel here was somewhere in Central Park (if I remember correctly) and I would have completely missed it if the musician would not have played in there. I tend to follow music when I cannot determine where it comes from - for exactly this reason!
I am German, but it took me 28 years to visit Berlin. I finally did it! I went there for a photowalk earlier this year and stopped here for a while to listen to these street musicians. The whole scene was awesome - the sunset, the leprechaun, the music, the Brandenburger Gate... Awesome. After about 20 min I continued to have a beer - it is Germany, after all!
