Ah it seems to be going around. Hope everyone is feeling better this weekend - since it's the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall event celebrations.

Has a pretty good list including calendar of events.

 

That being said, anyone want to set something up for the weekend?

I'd love to do something this weekend - would like to take some pics of the domino's set up for mauerfall. Also of the mauermob on monday evening. I haven't really had a good look over that calendar yet, was there anything else that struck you of interest? Still happy to do some night shots and try out the light painting though :)

Hi,

 

Yes, I want to see the domino fall and also the people lined up.

 

more info on the domino fall:

Festival of Freedom

The Festival of Freedom will begin with an open-air concert at Pariser Platz by the Staatskapelle Berlin conducted by Daniel Barenboim. After the concert, the fall of the Berlin Wall will be symbolised by knocking over designed dominos in a live performance, which will include the designers of the Domino Action, politicians, contemporary witnesses and guests from all over the world. The former German Foreign Minister, Hans-Dietrich Genscher, and the Nobel Peace Laureates Kofi Annan, Muhammad Yunus and Mikhail Gorbachev will be among the guests. The event will be broadcast live in ZDF from 19.25 until 20.15. Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to attend this extraordinary event.

 

Already on 7 and 8 November, the Domino Gallery made up of around 1000 over-sized dominos will cover a route of around two kilometres from the Reichstagsufer via the Brandenburg Gate to Potsdamer Platz and will create unique images and impressions close to where the Berlin Wall once stood.

 

http://www.mauerfall09.de/en/calendar.html?event=16&month=&day=&cHash=c6a8dfcea9 - There's a photography exhibition - the one at Max Lieberman haus that you mentioned that I'd like to go see as well.

 

Otherwise, there's the festival without borders that's over by me -

and on the morning of the 9th of November, at 10 AM, the actual commemoration ceremony itself -

(I'm off on the 9th and absolutely will be here.)

 

** and this will be awesome for photographs - if we can catch them - "living Angels" at the tops of buildings all along the wall on November 9th, between 12 noon and 3pm and 7 pm - for an hour each time.

www.engelueberberlin.de is the official site.

 

Otherwise - for others who might be interested in LOTS of walking - there's an anniversary walk between the first two crossings - from Bornholmer str to the Brandenburg gate.

thanks thats looking good! How about a walk around the dominos, followed by the exhibition at Max Lieberman Haus on either saturday or sunday - I don't really mind which, the warmest preferably!

 

And for Monday I'll certainly be at the commemeration ceremony and then it'd be cool to see those angels after.

So Callie, which is better for you - Saturday or Sunday? Sunday looks like fog in the morning, but both are about equal as far as the temperatures /etc goes.

 

Thanks!

How about tomorrow then - say meet 11:30 at Potsdamer Platz and walk the domino gallery up to Reichstag Ufer, then do the exhibition after?

I hope at least one of the angels wears a black trenchcoat as a nod to Wim Wenders.

I would like to join. But where to meet in the Platz? I get lost in that maze just trying to go to the movies. ;)

What are old traffic lights? Are they easy to find?

 

Can I come too...? I'm not much of a photographer, but I really like photography exhibitions.

Sounds great.

 

The easiest way to say the old traffic light is when you come out of the Potsdamer Platz Train station go toward the Christmas Market - look for the green traffic light/clock. I believe that's the one Callie means - and if the setup of the Christmas market is the same as last year...

is the google map, if you see the green 'S'- I think the old green stop light is kind of in the block down and to the left....

thats it yes, thanks Rose! The traffic lights are easy to spot, look like this potsdamer+platz+traffic+lights.jpg - they are a replica of what were supposedly the first traffic lights in Europe, people would come for a trip out to watch them change colour <_<

 

Tree do come along, you're very welcome :)

Hi All,

 

I'm Kristin, new to Berlin and Toytown. Sorry I missed your outing this morning, sounds fun! I actually came here to get recommendations for where to have 120 film developed? I've got my Holga in tow and would love to start taking some pics. Thanks for any tips, and hopefully meet you all soon.

Not sure where to get your 120 film developed. I'd say check around to most places - but there is only 1 or 2 actual "send it in" printers here - that service the entire country. If they don't do it, you may need to send the film overseas and wait for return.

 

Otherwise, For those going tomorrow, The Commemoration of the berlin wall begins at 1030 am. I heard that there will be many dignitaries there including Gorbachev, Hillary Clinton, and several other leaders. I'd anticipate it will be a very large event - so my thoughts are toward going VERY early tomorrow morning, planing on leaving my house around 7:30 or 8am.

I would think somewhere like Pixel Grain http://www.pixelgrain.com/index.php?id=65&L=2 would do 120 film. Sorry don't know for sure, I haven't used 120 film for a few years and just used to process my own then. If Pixel Grain don't, then you could aks the guys at Calumet http://www.calumetphoto.de// who are really helpful (I'm fairly sure there was a pro lab near their store too).
