Lumen Artifex

Lumen Artifex I go by the name Kain and happen to be an aspiring photographer, passionate high schooler and wannabe nerd, living in Berlin, the throbbing heart of Germany. I consider Lumen Artifex my very own playground for my photography. It features mostly landscape, street and people but I don't really limit myself to just one niche.

Roughly said, I love tumblr, food and Japan but if you want to know more about me, you can go over to my personal blog ヾ(゚∀゚ゞ)

All photos here were shot 100% by me, unless stated otherwise and I'd be very happy if you shared them with people! Just tell them whom they came from, 'kay? (*゚ー゚*)

Dark Skies
I’m glad we decided to check out the clock tower up in the food court (the one that was formerly a big post office) after all when we were in DC otherwise I would have never gotten to see this marvelous view of the city. A location worth visiting for everyone planning to go to Washington DC ;D

Happy New Year!
I wish you all a wonderful and prosperous new year! ^^
I would love to see the fireworks in Berlin with all my friends right now since people here in Kentucky don’t do that >.< (thus I had to dig up an old New Year’s Eve photo from last year whena my composition skills were rather … odd)
I’m must say that I’m quite excited for 2013 :3

Merry Christmas!
It&#8217;s kind of awkward to do this on the 25th but apparently Americans celebrate Christmas on the 25th instead of the 24th (at least here in Kentucky) soooo
Merry Christmas, everybody! =D

Downtown Sunset
Yes, I do feel kind of like a creep when doing street photography :/

Across The World
Oh boy, I do miss street photography greatly &#8230;
By the way, I shot this at the World Clock at the Alexanderplatz aka downtown Berlin. It is a very popular meeting spot for people and shows the time for every timezone on its clocks. The clocks themselves aren&#8217;t on the picture though but still, you can see its column with the world map. Hence the title =D
