Karl-Marx-Allee 69, Friedrichshain, Berlin
In front of, on either side of, and all over the hedges below a shuttered first-floor window on this wide, white-tiled high rise, ivy is meandering, ranging, turning gold and brown and waving in the wind. In a black square to one side, an indoor plant pushes against the glass.
This photo doesn’t really capture the vividness of the scene – it was a dark, overcast day, so even at 2 in the afternoon, the light was scant. But I wanted to record these plants anyway.
