As you can see my #StyleInYourCity post is not in Bristol but rather Berlin, I have so many cool pics that I wanted to share with you and I love the pops of yellow I found on my travels. When you think of Berlin, most people think of the words: grey, industrial, cold and concrete, and while the last one might be true, I couldn't have found it more different. Yes there is graffiti and areas that are unloved, but there is also colour and curiosities waiting to be discovered and that is why I love seeing places through others eyes as there is always a new perspective to see.

Whether it's a painted facade, glittering signs, bright balconies, the U-Bhan speeding overhead, swinging bulbs or dappled light, it seems that even on an overcast day the city is alive. Colour lurks around every corner waiting to be observed and when the light slowly fades another yellow comes to life, headlights stream down roads and the hum of fluorescent tubes and street lights flicker into action. When dark approaches the city bursts and it feels like everyone, both young and old, are all outside with somewhere to go. At the weekend the streets are eerily still as the city sleeps off its hazy night, and mornings emerge slowly into the day as lunchtime approaches.
To me these pops of colour are like reminders of the energy here, if you only see the ugly in urban landscapes or keep your eyes down as you rush from one destination to another you could easily miss it, but take time to look around and even on the greyest of days the city is alive and buzzing.
So how does it work?
