Lights of Berlin

At the Neue Wache (New Guardhouse) on Unter den Linden boulevard, Kathe Kollwitz's moving Mother with her Dead Son sits under a breathtaking oculus.
Built in the early 1800's as a guardhouse for the Prussian monarchy, the Neue Wache now serves as Germany's central memorial for victims of war and tyranny.  
Visiting the Neue Wache, with its impressive Doric columns and brick structure was just the beginning of an enlightening day.
 Sony Center's beams of light were so invigorating, I couldn't stop shaking as I tried to
 capture its energy and colors.  In the end I came away with wonderful impressions of how light
shines, not only through things, but through us.
