I love the Spring like dove decorations around this colorful door in Greenwich Village, New York.

Friedrich-List-Schule Door

This door was photographed by my son, Amedeo in Berlin. He thought of me when he photographed it. The Friedrich List School, Commercial College for Business Languages, is a public vocational school that offers programs combining business studies and foreign languages in Berlin. It is in Victoriastadt not far form the Spree River.

Victoriastadt, also known as Kaskelkiez after the Kaskelstraße (street), is a residential area in the district of Rummelsburg in the southwest of the district of Lichtenberg. The name “Victoria City” is an expression of the close connection that existed with the United Kingdom at the end of the 19th century under its regent Queen Victoria.

As a historic workers’ settlement, Victoriastadt has strongly influenced the traditional image of the old Berlin of the Wilhelminian period. A large part of the residential development, partly with coach houses and small workshops in the backyards, has been preserved.

Midtown Doors

Bergdorf is as elegant as its doors. Bill’s Restaurant is now closed. I particularly like the lamps around the 1872 Central Synagogue. It snowed. #ThursdayDoors

Financial District

After the trip, our small group of Sierra Photo NYC members went to dine at the Dubliner on Street. The setting sun shining up Water Street was a lovely surprise.

GV Doors by Marc

Today I’m posting some Greenwich Village Doors photographed by Marc Felix. One mosoleum gate from Green-Wood in Brooklyn. The bulldog over the old stable used to be the emblem of Wells Fargo.

Met Xmas

We went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art yesterday. Here’s a couple for Christmas. My goal is to say something nice to strangers and spread good cheer. We are all in this together.

Cranach-Hofe

The Cranachhöfe documents the work of Lucas Cranach the Elder, Lucas Cranach the Younger, Hans Cranach,Augustin Cranach and Lucas Cranach III in Wittenberg. The building at Markt 4 and the pharmacy with courtyard at Schlossstraße 1 is where Lucas Cranach and his descendants lived and worked. Lucas Cranach the Elder had set up the printing room in the Cranachhof in the once famous printing town of Wittenberg. He printed the 95 Theses, the first part of the Luther Bible, Luther’s table speeches and numerous woodcuts were printed there too. After the reconstruction of the Cranachhöfe, a historic printing room was again set up in Schlossstrasse, in which texts (Luther’s table speeches) and illustrations (in linocut) are now produced using the book high-print process. On special occasions, the historic Gutenberg Press at Cranachhof Markt 4 will be activated to demonstrate how printing was done during the Middle Ages.

For some of his artwork see Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472–1553) in the Lucas Cranach Digital Archive. I like his partridges (with audio) shown at Lucas Cranach the Elder | Dresden | The Morgan Library. Here’s the site for The Cranach Foundation (cranach-stiftung.de) with loads information on the history of the two houses and the exhibits.

I thoroughly enjoyed Wittenberg. It is well worth a visiting. It would be nice to see more of it someday.
