Capturing Berlin

I took this picture last Sunday morning. I ride past this spot once or twice a day. The picture shows the U-Bahn train leaving Schlesisches Tor Station headed toward Warschauer Straße. It's surprising how this view captures Berlin. There's the iconic elevated subway train, the Imbiss (fast/snack food restaurant) located under the tracks, the bicycles tied to trees and posts on the right, and the early 20th century apartment building in the background. It's not the kind of photo that's usually found in the tourist books. There's no historic architecture, no beautiful nature scene, and no spectacular urban panorama. It's just an ordinary view of Berlin.
