Since i’m back to Dubai after my long journey, again i started to see lines & urban designs smile emoticon , so i will share with you today a architectural image that i took in Berlin.
This design is by the Italian architect Aldo Rossi, called Quartier Schützenstraße, is just a few meters from the famous Checkpoint Charlie, in a first heavily bombed during World War II and then crossed by the wall.
Moving around the building to find the correct perspective, was a bit hard to captured since you have to look up & manage your frame for this beautiful octagon backyard design & by shooting a ultra wide with my 14-24mm, however i was very lucky to have that day a nice clouds moving in the sky, so i decided to use my Formatt Hitech Filters16 stop firecrest for 245 seconds exposure time.
In Greek mythology, King Minos dwelt in a palace at Knossos. He had Daedalus construct a labyrinth (by some connected with the double-bladed axe, or labrys) in which to retain his son, the Minotaur. Daedalus also built a dancing floor for Queen Ariadne (Homer, Iliad 18.590-2). The name “Knossos” was subsequently adopted by Arthur Evans because it seemed to fit the local archaeology. The identification has never been credibly questioned, mainly because of that archaeology.
