John Sandell photography

Swissotel. Like a number of images this season this one is from Berlin – one of my favourite cities – but it actually dates back to 2008, when I had a couple of winding-down days in the city at the end of my five-week Grand Tour. With no particular highlights planned I found myself in the busy Ku'Damm shopping street – not a pleasant place for me! – but found some good photographic subjects in the tall buildings not far from 'Zoo' station. Late afternoon sun provided relief at the end of a miserable wet day, and an unexpected blue sky which I've darkened down strongly in the conversion to monochrome.

Technical: NIKON D300, f=150.0 mm, ISO500, 1/640 sec @ f13.0
