Grab Shot 20 - "Palace of the Republic"

Amber Tones

"This shot shows the intact facade of "Palast der Republik" (Palace of the Republic), an historical artifact of East German's socialistic past," said Jan Boelsche. "A few weeks ago they started to tear down the golden brown chunk of glass at the shores of river Spree, right in the heart of Berlin. Not an easy task to do -- its original architects warned the city council about the possible impact on the static balance of the whole area due to missing pressure on the underground, which consists mainly of water and sand. The girl is just disembarking from a sightseeing boat located at the landing stage opposite to the palace."

Shot with a Sony DSC T3. You can see more of Jan's work on his flickr page.
