It was 30 years ago since the fall of the Berlin Wall on Saturday the 9th November. The news coverage reminded me that during a visit to Berlin we had gone to visit the remaining bits of the Berlin Wall.

An evening stroll around the streets of Zurich then gave us a bit of idea where to go on the following day.

The aim was to see if my images would gain acceptances in international photographic salons around the world.
