East Berlin, December 23, 1989
I've been meaning to share these images for some time. By sheer accident, I found myself in East Berlin on December 23, 1989 -- the day they opened the Brandenburg Gate. It was a pretty amazing year to be abroad and it was a gift to stumble upon a part of history. I'm just sad a better photographer wasn't there in my stead. This was super high speed b&w film that I had been playing with in my manual 35 mm camera. I wrote in my journal that the band played Soul Man, Dock of the Bay and When the Rain Comes. It started to rain pretty hard otherwise I would have stayed longer.
