After this visit I am going to call Santiago as “Street Photographer’s Paradise”. Such beautiful and photocamera-friendly people live there. Nobody …

Berlin On Bike

I am obsessed with bikes… I’ve found Berlin as a perfect city for riding one. There is no view in Berlin without Berliner or Berlinerin on a bicycle. If you don’t see any bikers, take a closer look, at least a bike itself must be somewhere around ;)
