Potsdamer Platz Reflections

Reflections in the big city is one of my favorite themes.
Usually it is the shiny façades of modern skyscrapers that serve as mirrors.
Sometimes it is the windless or undulating surfaces of ponds and canals.
A few times a fresh rain puddle gives chance to show buildings of a unique side.
Often with dreamy surrealist abstractions.
Today, I join Lars' post "Refections after Rain" (
Three impressions of captured by me in the same rain puddle. (52.509480, 13.376053 – intersection Potsdamer Strasse – Ebert Strasse – Stresemann Strasse

In the 1st photo we see two of the 5 buildings belonging to the Beisheim Center on the north side of the Potsdamer Platz.
The building on the left (on the reverse reflection on right side) is the Ritz-Carlton hotel. Designed by Hilmer & Sattler und Albrecht..
The building on the right (on the opposite reflection so left side) is the multi-functional Delbrück House. Designed by Kollhoff und Timmermann Architekten in collaboration with Hilmer & Sattler und Albrecht GmbH.

Photo 2 shows a surreal expression of the Kollhoff Tower (see also:
The Kohlhoff Tower was designed by Kohlhof and Timmermann architects.

Photo 3: Same photo, different photographer, different camera.
It should come as no surprise to you that Lars and I often take more or less the same pictures. The3rd photo shows an example of this.
The Bahn Tower designed by architect: Helmut Jahn (see ook:
