I found these in Berlin’s Zombie Hospital.

Someone with a heavy heart must have created them.

Weekly Photo Challenge . Motion

I’m using a few of my older photos for this weeks photo challenge.

The first photo was taken in Berlin during a Holi Festival. I can still feel the excitement as the DJ counted down to the moment we threw our colored powder as high as we could. We all cheered, laughed and danced as the colors settled down.

The second photo was taken in Hawaii during the winter surf season. The waves roared and thundered. Spectators sat silently on the beach to marvel.

The third photo was taken in Berlin during a festival called Karneval der Kulturen. At the end of the day-long parade, drummers got together and played for the happy, dancing crowd.

Berlin

Weekly Photo Challenge . Achievement

I realize I’ve been MIA for a while. What a great weekly topic to start off my posts with again!

I was able to attend the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall last week Sunday. Millions of people gathered around the path where the Berlin Wall once stood. In its place were lit balloons, called the Lichtgrenze (Border of Light), each containing a tag with personal wishes, quotes, and messages. In the evening, each balloon was released (8,000 of them) in a domino effect. Everyone cheered as each balloon shot up and lifted away.

The fall of the Berlin Wall was a great achievement. It was the destruction of communism in Eastern Europe, it reunified Germany, and it brought freedom to many people.

As the last picture states, there are still more walls to tear down. Hopefully one day these countries can live in peace and freedom.
