Project Photo: The Holocaust Memorial, Berlin, Germany

Holocaust Memorial in Berlin.

The controversial Holocaust Memorial was designed by the architect Peter Eisenmann and engineer Buro Happold. The memorial consists of 2711 concrete slabs (stelae) and covers around 4.7 acres of ground. The Stelae are all the same length and width, however the height varies for each piece and are all placed on un-even ground in a grid-like pattern. It was designed to make the viewer feel confused, uneasy and lost, which is exactly what I felt. Some people may view this as just a block of concrete, but I took a moment to immerse myself in the shadows of the blocks to view and decipher my own view of the memorial and thinking of the Jews who had lost their lives.

Many people have different opinions and visions about the memorial. Above I have taken a picture to show my view through my eyes and the camera lens.

Project Photo: Phi Phi Ley

Have you ever searched for holidays in Thailand, particularly for Phuket? Have you come across one particular photo that stands out in many travel websites and magazines? Well I would certainly have to agree that there is one perfect picture that somes up this holiday destination and this is my version of the long boat on Phi Phi Don where 'The Beach' was filmed!

Project Photo

I did a canal tour through Amsterdam and was happy snapping away with my camera of the copious amounts of bikes, un even apartments, boat houses and windows until I came across this gorgeous little car and decided to take a snap of him too!
