Potsdam by Sean P. Durham

I live in Berlin, Germany. The city is an intense place to walk around in, people are often rushed, on the way to work or an appointment to meet a friend.

The Ubahns/ Underground trains are chock full these days and people get hot under the collar when dodging bike riders through the streets, then to cram into a hot and sticky train to travel three stops with an unwashed armpit dangling in front of their face.

Potsdam is also a busy place, normally.

I went there, it was a warm spring day and I was hoping to photograph a different type of hustle and bustle on the street.

It was Sunday, so I discovered that most people were meandering through the square, poking around in souvenir shops or just lazing in the sun. That can take the edge of the feeling when you want to photograph people in a rush.

But, I did end up with one or two decent shots of a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Street Photography is an experience that is similar meditation. It requires focus and intention, to stay concentrated on an idea and seek it. It is healthy, afterwards you feel elated but relaxed.
