This is a view of the entrance/exit to the subway at Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, where I spent a few days in the summer of 2006.
I just arrived with the subway at Potsdamer Platz, and walk out on the square, where I felt like I had arrived sometime in the future, I was looking around to find a way to bring that feeling in to my photo, and ended up by the railing looking down at the subway entrance/exit.
I waited a while to get rid of most of the people, and then made my photo.
I have cloned away a few things in the picture, among them a fire extinguisher hanging on the wall right beside the two people, I also removed a person walking on the “lower deck”, those elements where rather disturbing and removing them added to the future feeling, I think.
