Frühling im Botanischen Garten, Braunschweig

bin gestern für ein Treffen in Braunschweig ein wenig zu früh angekommen und hab den benachbarten botanischen Garten glücklicherweise entdeckt. Hier ein Paar Bilder, die daraus entstanden sind…oh wie ich nach einem Makro-Objektiv sehne… :-)

Tulipa sp.

Magnolia sp.

Aubrieta deltoidea

Ich war eine miserable Botanikerin an dem Tag…habe keine Namen aufgeschrieben, weil ich nicht glaubte, dass die Bilder etwas werden. Keine Ahnung, welche Magnolie im 2. Bild zu sehen ist…vielleicht krieg ich irgendwann die Motivation dazu, nachzuforschen.

aber bis dahin genieße ich einfach den schönen Frühling. :-)


a couple months ago I came across this really great project from Michael David Murphy in which he attempts to record those photographs he didn‘t manage to take, or were even impossible to take.

On my train ride to Braunschweig yesterday I had my camera with me, but it just wasn‘t possible to capture the following scene, so I didn‘t even try. So this is me paying tribute to this „unphoto“ and to Michael’s site (

This is a photograph I did not take of a reflection in a train window of me and the strangers (themselves colleagues) with me in our cabin; I am reflected just once, he twice, and she thrice…the lights of the tunnel through which we are passing streak by in the background.


After almost 7 years in Germany, I finally made it to Berlin two weeks ago…and was quickly overwhelmed.
Berlin seemed one giant contradiction in and of itself: abandonment, renovation, old, new, dirty, sparkling, frightening, exciting, love, hate, lust, repulsion… My head spun and my emotions whirled out of control during my relatively short stay. I felt myself pulled in by the enormity of the city and at the same time caged in by my feeling of insignificance among such massive swarms of people. I wish that I had paid a little more attention to the contradictions of the city and a little less attention to the rollercoaster of emotions rushing through my head, so that I could better capture both, but hindsight is always 20/20…
What I did manage to somehow capture I present to you here:

And remember „love is the answer,“ but caged love?!?
