Monterey Bar

Monterey Bar, Danzigerstrasse, Prenzlauer.

The first Australian I met in Berlin was a Melbourne guy who owns this bar. I went in because of the craft beer signs outside. Basically has beer, whisky and rock and roll late).

Like a lot of bars I’ve been to in Berlin this one doesn’t open until 6pm or 7pm. In this case Adie and his partner also run Alternative Berlin tours so they have a day job. (alternativeberlin.com/ )

Charlottenburg Palace

One of those odd moments when a quick snap gave me much more than I was expecting. I was walking across the road from the Berggruner Museum to Sammlung Scharf-Gerstenberg when I stopped to take a snap of Charlottenburg Palace. The result was an almost painting-like image that I didn’t realise was there until I looked at it later. I was also shooting across the multi-lane Spandauer Damm so can’t believe there were no vehicles in the shot.
