Berlin Diary: In the Belly of the Beast

TV screens at a subway station in Berlin

Riding the above ground train. First car. Look out into the bright cold, mesmerized by the falling snow. Train pulls into Schlesisches Tor and I see a tower of video monitors. All-around-the-campfire, flickering screens, orange cozy warmth in the cold blue white of winter.  An oven, full of moving pictures.

Step out of the car quick before the train begins rolling. Snap a shot in the falling snow. Step back in before the door rolls shut. Off we go down the tracks. The image stays with me.
