Mountain of Steel. 

Week 4/52 

Perfect Timing is a weekly photography project by two friends who met in college, became roommates and have been close ever since. We share a love for languages and travel, and although we're from the same southern state, we now live on different continents, balancing a demanding work life with a private life. We both agree that everything happens for a reason, whether we see these moments as positive or negative at the time, propelling us ahead or slowing us down. We hope you will join us each week, as we share little moments of Perfect Timing with you.

The more I travel the more I learn to appreciate the beauty in the train stations in Germany. This particular shot below is from the main station in Berlin. No matter how often I am there, or how tired I am when I arrive it is always one of the stations that stops me in my tracks (no pun intended) - six floors, a mass of metal. Steel and iron combined with glass creates not only the obvious industrial feel (which I am fond of) but there is something majestic, something mysterious about it. Maybe it is just the simplicity of the architectural design or the fact that these massive structures house countless stories of the travelers who wander, walk, run and wait day in and day out beneath its heavy beams. 

Next time you are traveling, whether for business or pleasure I would encourage you to stop, slow down and find the beauty in your surroundings. It's there, sometimes you just have to look a little harder. 

I knew from the moment we met that it'd be a lasting friendship. Kindred spirits. It was as if we had always known each other. Like family. My dear friend Madalena of my personal coffee break. When she's not busy running her own company, she is out exploring new places, jogging or enjoying a great cup of joe. I am sure you will adore her as much as I do. Please take a moment to check out her "Perfect Timing" photo from this week: "growth".
