Oriental Garden in the “Gärten der Welt”, Berlin Marzahn (Germany).

You may wonder why I used SKRWT for some of the shots posted lately – I used it mainly for lens correction! The Zuiko 1.4/50, and even more so the 2.8/24, are showing much more distortion than I thought, especially when used at short distances. The 1.4/50 has rather simple barrel distortion that is easy to compensate (and SKRWT has a tool for this simple kind of distortions), but the 2.8/24 has some weird “wavy” distortion on top of the barrel distortion …

Anonymous asked: Berlin
(Sorry this is so late, I’ve been really busy)

Full Name: Berlin Awnitz

Gender and Orientation: Male, heteromantic ace

Pronouns: he/him/his

Ethnicity/Species: Fox

Birthdate: August 12

Guilty Pleasures: swingin’ jazz. He can’t help but dance. Oh. And his ponytail.

Phobias: he won’t tell me.

What They Would Be Famous For: in another life, he’d have been a performer. Think singer/dancer from the 20s or 30s.

What They Would Get Arrested For: killing and thieving. He’s a thief and assassin.

OC You Ship Them With: none yet

OC Most Likely To Murder Them: Rez Hanson, the detective who’s been after him for years

Favorite Movie/Book Genre: surprisingly, romance. Not the awful ones though. The ones with an actual realistic story. Despite being ace, he’s a huge romantic.

Least Favorite Movie/Book Cliche: the bad guy never gets away in the end. He’s got a 4-5 year track record to prove otherwise, and that time is growing.

Talents and/or Powers: he’s very acrobatic. Good at parkour and moving silently.

Why Someone Might Love Them: he’s the charmer, the suave pretty boy type. He’s also very intelligent.

Why Someone Might Hate Them: he’s way too clever, also an unapologetic assassin. The someone that hates him? Rez.

How They Change: he used to be more quiet about his activities. He’s louder now, sometimes even announcing where he’ll be just to mess with Rez. Of course, he’s also grown more cautious, taking more time to case his next target.

Why You Love Them: I’ve never had anyone like him. An unapologetic bad guy that should live in years gone by. If only it was a different time…
