BERLIN: YOU ARE NOW ENTERING THE AMERICAN SECTOR

"Checkpoint Charlie", the best-known Berlin Wall crossing point between East Berlin and West Berlin during the Cold War. This shot is taken from the "East Berlin" side, showing the picture of an american soldier at the border to the american sector (today "West Berlin"). On the other side you can see a picture of a sowjet soldier - which I missed to capture, unfortunately...

For the Berlin-series I just used an old 50mm lens, with manual focus only. Topic is street / documentation.
