Dreadful Nonsense

"I've read your blog. it's really funny. you should write a column." - Jon Ronson

German Efficiency

One more set of photographs from our holiday in Berlin, and then I swear I'm done. I did take so many thousands, I've got photos of some of the fantastic memorials they have dotted around the city, some very artistic shots that I took from the top of the Reichstag building that I think are fantastic, but are probably just nonsense, and a tremendous number of photographs of plastic bears.

This was my favourite thing about Berlin, besides all of the other things that I have already said on this blog were my favourite things: the graffitti.

I adored this one. It's absolutely huge, and located in the doorway of what looks like an abandoned building but is in fact a five-story multi purpose building which includes three art galleries, a dodgy looking cinema and a top-floor bar that has no windows, only gaps in the walls. This was my MySpaz photo for ages. This is what I think I look like. I don't.

I don't know why I liked this one so much, but I really did. I wanted to see more fat, cartoon versions of rappers, but there weren't any more in this building that I could see.

I also took tons of photos of what can only be described as quite pornographic pieces of art, which I'm not going to post here, because I think one of my god-daughters reads this occassionally and I don't want her becoming corrupted by sights such as those.

(And K, if you do read this, remember: smoking is cool, lie to your parents and virginity is for losers. Okay?)

Last one - we saw this from a train window when we were going from somewhere to somewhere else and I very nearly didn't get my camera out in time to photograph it. I love so many things about it, but mostly I love the fact that they helpfully put each president's surname initial on the body of the drawing, so it's clear who they represent. I'm not sure what point they're trying to make (and I'm not sure if they realise they've missed out a president) but I still really liked it.
