I started my photography year of 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark in January. After a day full of work I found some time to spent in Nyhavn, the old harbour of Copenhagen. I did some long exposure and it was very, very cold. Quite liked the result of the smooth water in Nyhavn in this pic. Find our more about my "At night" work.

I choose my Top Ten pictures every year and thought about my Top Ten street photography images as a blogpost. Collecting my very best street moments from all over the place. If you want more of this check my street photography gallery.
My street pic "Selfie Generation" got featured on photofocus. I wanted to shoot the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin differently than just straight lines and this is what I came up with. Would love to see their taken selfie including a sixth unexpected person in the back.
Marco Larousse picked my photo and wrote:
"Why I picked this image: Street photography and documentary photography can go hand in hand. And this image is a strong example of that. We are currently experiencing the “generation selfie”. What looks common to us now may be a typical historical image showing what people did in 2015 for future generations. Always keep that in mind when you go out to take pictures in the streets!"
Marco is also from Hamburg and a constant inspiration and how you can shoot your home town as a street photography. Be sure to check out his website. Thanks, Marco and photofocus!
I had some hours to kill in between two business appointments in Berlin end of March 2015. Went to the Holocaust Memorial, the former Tempelhof airport and finally back to the central station. Decided to do the pics all in black and white since I had to shoot in the middle of the day. Take a look!
