We went twice to Berlin in 2010. This is the first Shooting Days in Berlin.
We went for a second time to Berlin in 2010. Our aim was to go back to the former sanatorium Beelitz-Heilstätten, since we hadn't had enough time for a complete photoshoot.
We went there with the best models of Mister Belgium Personality, one of the beauty pageant of our country (most belgian people look quite awfull, but we have the most beauty pageants of the world).
Berlin, like New York and most capitalist cities doesn't sleep at night. The show must go on and the euros (or dollars) must be spent to keep the economy going. Not being able to shoot at Beelitz-Heilstätten, we went to the railroad station of Pankow. It is a former repair centre, but when we arrived most of the site was in complete desolation. When a plant or industrial site closes, there is a time limit when it's ideal to visit the site: after some years, there's nothing left from the former glory of the site; everything is removed or broken, covered with tags or overgrown and has become virtually impenetrable (the “Rundhaus”). Nothing was left that remembered the visitors of the history of the place. Visiting the place, nobody would have known that train were restored here: there are no rails anymore!
To avoid being locked up in the traffic jams, we did some sightseeing on sunday morning and leaved the city in the late afternoon, but halas! the traffic congestion lasted till we were back in Belgium. Again, it took us 15 hours to drive back.
Another shooting in a sanatorium: Joseph Lemaire (Tombeek).
