The old 19th century water standpipe nearby the railroad line from Berlin to Gorlitz is a remnant of a very different era. The missing second track was taken to the Soviet Union as war reparation and it was not replaced to this day. So the view along the railroad is also a view into the pasts.

Photographer: Jens Hieke (Dresden, Germany) Registered
Jens Hieke was born in 1967 and lives in Leipzig, Saxony, Germany. Though he was a graduate librarian, but working for a broadcaster for some time. He was always fascinated by the unlimited diversity of the world, and only a few years ago he discovered photography as a wonderful possibility to capture the transient, constantly changing beauty of humans, animals and things. Actually a man of words, the passion for photography is more than an addition to his other love, the literature. He had previously photographed with the Samsung NV24HD, but currently the Canon EOS 500D is his catcher.
