One cannot deny the fact that females on ads or covers sell usually better than males or get more attention except of course for a few examples like male fitness mags or some male product ads.
You will have women on women’s magazines but hardly men. And you’ll have women on many men’s magazines too – hardly ever men.
So if you are a woman you are constantly faced with other women looking perfectly (photoshopped) pretty at you.
How is this influencing the way they feel about themselves?

Seriously, these bins are pretty sh*t at their job.

VIP = Very Important Papierkorb – so clever
This street photo posted by Werben und Verkaufen Magazin on Instagram made me laugh. I m a massive fan of the BSR (Berliner Cleaning Facilities) advertising style. Since a few years all bins and cleaning vehicles in the city are covered with funny slogans and phrases that really make you feel connected and sympathetic with the company – and even the rubbish bins – which seem to come alive because of that.
And this one is definitely the most inventive and stylish yet. Looks like it’s a clever PR gag for the Berlinale – the city’s prestigious annual movie festival.
Nope to Trump (Photo by Stefan Klenke)
On Saturday, 4 February 2017, I joined ca. 1500 people at the No Ban – No Wall protest march in Berlin. We gathered at the Brandenburg Gate listened to a few passionate speakers and chanted protest slogans. We then walked passed the Reichstag building towards the American Embassy where we gathered to again listen to speeches at shouted anti fascist slogans directed at the US officials behind their rocket-proof walls.

Separation Walls are evil!
For me it was very symbolic to protest against Trumps stupid idea to build a massive wall precisely at the point where the Berlin Wall once divided our city and nation. We humans must learn that separation walls are not a way to improve anything in the world. They will just cause more suffering and hate. We must work towards a world where we do not need walls any more.

Locked Love – Berlin Treptow (Photo by Stefan Klenke)
During the years of walking around Berlin with my camera I noticed hearts everywhere in lots of different forms. I have a huge street photo collection of them. It’s actually my biggest collection of my many themes. It makes me happy that the symbol for love is such a popular theme in this city.
These are just a few of the very recent examples.
Here a few “handy” street observations from my walks through my new neighbourhood Berlin Treptow.
