I'm a young aspiring photographer that has a sweet tooth for HDR photography.

Why

 

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Today I continue from the Germany photos that I found hiding deep in my photography folders.  This photo shows some more graffiti, but this graffiti is from one of the last standing sections of the Berlin wall.  A lot of the gift shops in Berlin sell broken up pieces from the wall.  They are small pieces less than a square inch in size.  The funny part of this is many people have done calculations of what the total square footage of the Berlin Wall would have been.  Then they have estimated about how much square footage of it has been sold in these gift shops.  The calculations concluded that between 125% and 200% of the original area mass of the Berlin Wall have been sold over the years.  So the more than likely when you go buy a piece of the wall from a gift shop, it is a fake.
