Even Better Than The Real Thing

Another U2 song, from the Achtung Baby album.

Here's a photograph of the television tower at Berlin's Alexanderplatz. I don't know what the strange building in the front is for. The sky was lit beautifully by the city's lights and the long exposure and a little post-processing helped increase the effect. Picture taken on a cold winter night in February 2010. The temperature was below zero degrees Celsius.

From time to time I mention music or other artists that inspire me. Those of you who know me personally know that I'm a supporter of the Free Tibet campaign, but I must admit that I'm very impressed with this Chinese photographer.

Seems like David Cameron has won the election. Can't wait to find out whether or not the Lib Dems are gonna accept his offer to form a government together.

Have a nice weekend!

- Dom

Wow! the red really makes this pop for me. That tv tower is very radiant :]

Thanks :-) They're illuminating it from the bottom up. If you take a picture from a distance, it wouldn't look good because the top is dark.

Thanks Donnie... I was wondering whether it might be too red, but I kinda like it.
