Berlin - A rainy night in Alexanderplatz
Cool photo. Looks like it could’ve been in a French New Wave film.
Very cool shot — almost timeless…like it could be from any era. Beautiful! 🙂
I m not a fan of Berlin, but I like this shot! 🙂
hey! how can you be not a fan of Berlin? It’s an awesome city. Okay, I lived there for 8 years and decided to move, but still… it is one of Europe’s most open and green cities.
It looks like a night perfect for a Cold War movie.
Yes, like “Smiley’s People.” A little depressing looking, but showing the difference between raw & dark and cozy & warm.
Very interesting to look at. I like it.
What is Alexanderplatz? Looks maybe like a shopping mall. Do I see a MacDonald’s under the sign?
Rainy nights were made for spies!
NIce – very crisp and ‘filmic’. Thanks for posting it
Wir lieben deise! Sorry, our German needs some work! But this is a really great photo! We LoVe Berlin too, by the way!

Great image – I LOVE black and white work and do a lot of it myself.
My work can be seen here:
berlin, berlin… some cities feel great in the rain!
born and raised in berlin this picture brings back memories in many ways . . . thanks for posting it
wooowww!!! It’s is beautiful.. you are a real talented photographer.. 😀
The perfect picture !
Awesome photo! One of my favourite places to be in Berlin 🙂
Amazing photo. Well done!
Your photography is stunning! It’s cinematique — ever consider filming? You have raw energy that exudes clearly in your photos – keep up!
extraordinary and evocative
MMMmhm! I love this picture! – its a sort of old type movie theme, yet with a modern buildings. I can see myself being almost there!!!
Such an amazing shot, love it!
Wants me put on my trench coat, put up the collar and step right into the black and white movie about life, love an lost that your picture is painting up in front of my eyes.
Love this picture — reminds me of old black and white film noir. Congrats on being FP’d.
Beautiful photo. Taking it from inside, through a pane of glass, was a stroke of genius – the cold feel of the rain is very dramatic.
Love the photo’s great work, I am well impressed.
eritreocazzulati reblogged this on .
This picture is so dark, and so emotional!
Love the mood and use of rain.
Very good photo!
Great shot, Berlin is such a beautiful city. I got caught there in a rainstorm myself a few months back when visiting my sister. Didn’t stop us from having a great night (or taking silly photos)!
That is absolutely wonderful. The perfect inspiration and setting for a detective story.
Absolutely stunning photo! Like something from a 1930s film…
Cool, perfect with the location and time.
Beautiful. Makes me want a blanket and a good book.
Its reminded me of Blade Runner. And I like that.
Thank you for sharing!
This is definitely a 5 star shot. The simplicity allows the view to picture the atmosphere in a variety of eras.
My most favourite city in the entire world. Thanks for sharing the image 🙂
great ..see this…..
i lyk this pic
The rain looks likes thousands of strings of fairy lights… Christmas invades the mind.
Excellent shot. We were just there.
I absolutely love this. I think I saw someone else say it, but it does feel like it’s out of a different era. Wonderful work!
I love this photograph. It makes me want to reach for a notebook and pen and start writing furiously. Inspiring.
Love the Place, and Love the pick!
Rain was cooperative. Usually it’s those awful, unartistic drops in Berlin. Great work.
I lived in Berlin in the 80’s and went back for a visit earlier this year – to a totally different city, what with the wall down and such. This picture brings back a variety of memories! Great shot.
Nostalgic!!!!!!! Takes me to a place out of “Casa Blanca” or somewhere in that time. Vielen Dank!!!!!!!!
Great image that plays with time (1920’s / 40’s feel)
Pretty! It looks really beautiful! How the rain is falling and the everyday scene you have behind it!
It’s a texture over the top of the photo, but nice effect anyway.
Wintery and nice!
Great photo – I love Berlin, my favourite city by far!
look really good why dont u check out my blog?
Does the photo reveal your feelings about Berlin?
kinda reminds of sin city and casablanca…just sayin
This is such an evocative shot – I love the way you’ve captured the rain!
I almost thought it was a 40’s movie screenshot or something. Magnifique!
I was there a few month ago visiting my ‘in laws’ who are German – the picture is evocative and took instantaneously to Alexanderplatz – thank you
Great Shot! Proud..
For some reason it conjurs “Casablanca”. Starkly classic.
Raw, stark beauty!! . . . Thank you for sharing!
So gefällt sogar mir der Alex 🙂
Gruß aus Berlin,
I love this photo! =)
Good photo! =]
Take a look at my blog for everything photography! =]
Wow! I love this photo!
I love Berlin. we’ve visited it for 2-3 times in the past years and it’s so wonderful to see. We’ll have to schedule another visit there, I really miss it. Alexander Platz was one of the places I really enjoyed there. Can’t say I’d love rain, but it’s a wonderful pic nonetheless.
I always love black and white!
I was in that station when I was 24 years ago, the Wall was up, the VOPOS were on duty in the station; one was on the platform high up over the trains, just behind that glass facade, watching the trains. He had a machine gun. The atmosphere between E. and W. was tense. The Badder Meinhoff terrorists were active. It was such a different world. This was 1974.
This has a great noir feel to it, and reminds me of the bitter-sweet melancholy of Wim Wenders’ Wings of Desire. Lovely!
Such a brilliant photo. Very melancholic as others said. I love it!
absolutely gorgeous. Was it through a window? The rain drops are fantastic. Love Berlin.
Wow great work. Thanks for the share! You might like some of the photography on our blog! http://www.inthegreenroom.ca
Berlin isn’t the world’s prettiest city to photograph, but you’ve produced a dramatic and evocative image here. Bravo!
I note how it’s triggered different cinematic memories for various folk, above. For me, it’s a Fritz Lang film. Edward G. Robinson is caught in the rain (off picture), and I think that he might’ve just killed the femme fatale’s husband…
Make me miss Germany!
Is that a mcDonald i seen in Alexanderplatz?
love this shot!
nice capture! 😉
Nicole reblogged this on desertvista2015.
I really love this picture. It combines two of my favourite things: rain and Berlin!
Beautiful photo of a place I know well! Thanks!
i hate it 😦
excuse me KOKO
EXUSE ME KOKO
Excellent work. I can almost feel the weather on my face when looking at it.
I HATE IT
ich vermisse mein kleines Berlin
so much atmosphere! great work
make me miss my rainy days in Berlin this summer… beautiful shot.
Weather like this is the reason why I rather move to Malta: http://andreasmoser.wordpress.com/2011/11/13/leaving-london-moving-to-malta/
Awwww, I LOVE Berlin!
One of my favourite cities in the world. :]
And you’ve captured its industrial beauty.
Kudos to you!
Suddenly I am missing my days in Berlin. Thank you for sharing, I love it!!
Not sure if it is because I am hungry, but the first thing I noticed was the golden arches(mcdonald’s sign) at the bottom right corner. Afterwards, I absorbed the eerieness of the photo. Wow!
Wow, this photo is beautiful! You really captured Alexanderplatz as I’ve never seen it before. I have just moved to Berlin so am excited to get out and explore some more!
Nice capture. I do see a McD’s there! I believe you shot this through glass. It looks like rain water running down a window. Beautiful photo.
very good shot
Wow very cool photograph. I like the way the Rain looks in the Foreground yet it is still not the central part of the image.
That is such an awesome photo!
Reminds me of “The Spy Who Came in from the Cold” by John le Carre.
Great shot! Really inspiring.
Beautiful photo! 🙂
Great blog check out mine at http://kyleericson.wordpress.com/
Very nice. Have you read ‘Alone in Berlin’? Reminds me of that.
Have you ever played the game Limbo? This reminds me of that. Very cool.
Capital of Techno, nice, the only clear memory of this station I have is of it in the rain… this brought back memories. Check out my techno blog, if that’s your kinda thing… http://wp.me/1vvd7
Your photography is beautiful.
Very well put together. Photos and naration made me feel as though I was right there with you. Thanks for taking the time to share. -Lucas
Thanks to all for the kind words!
You were in Germany and did not manage to see Hamburg? Still a great picture of the second best city in the country 😉
