Reichstag People

Reichstag People. There are interesting photo opportunities everywhere in the dome of the Berlin Reichstag – home of the Bundestag, the German parliament – which was designed by British architect Norman Foster and completed in 1999. The silhouette of the spiral walkway to the top, set against the ribs of the dome, provides dramatic shapes, and I decided to use this image in monochrome with only a hint of detail in the shadow areas. The walkway is always busy and it can take a while to find a good arrangement of people.

There are some details of my 2012 visit to the Reichstag on my Grand Tour blog.
