Berlin Wall and Around

“Your perspective on life comes from the cage you were held captive in.”
― Shannon L. Alder

Since I come from a family where communism and all the walls that communist regime built had a huge impact on my ancestors´fate, visiting the Berlin Wall was an emotional moment for me. I couldn´t prevent myself from thinking about every possible kind of walls. Not only those walls physically dividing nations and families, but the walls we build to protect ourselves from everything we might feel threatened about as well. What it is that makes us so weak we want to build a wall? Is it pride? Is it fear? Or maybe a painful disappointment?

We don´t talk anymore “free and happy” to ignore. We start to mess up our hearts. What are the real walls and what is just pretending that we´re gone? Walls don´t fall without effort. What does it take?

How about building bridges instead of walls for a change…


Things that should not have been forgotten



So we took the subway again… Shot taken by MS


For now I know what I can be And now my heart is flying free


There is a place I call my own Where I can stand by the sea


Good luck Charleen and Zico


Evil versus friendship


Walls have tongues, and hedges ears…




Many thanks for this trip. Shot by MS.


Thanks for stopping by!


About terissmile

Teresa is the name. I was born in the Czech Republic, but since I always leave a piece of my heart in every place I had chance to live for a while, I feel more like a child of the world. It all started with moments which had a huge impact on my emotional level and on myself as well. Moments seemingly ordinary and insignificant from the common point of view, more specifically emotions written in human faces. I started chasing those candid ephemeral moments that are there only for a second and then they are gone and lost forever - be it loneliness, fear, anxiety, astonishment, joy, love, disappointment, loss... But it´s all real. Real emotions of real people. I do not follow any rules in particular, the only thing I insist on is honesty and genuineness that help me to add life to possibly every shot I take. Since minimalism is my way, I try to keep them as minimalist as possible. That is how I create my world. Take a look if you like.
