Corner view "Street fashion" Potsdam-Berlin

Berlin and streetfashion. If you never have been to Berlin you may not know is the city where you sit naked, watching the boats on the river Spree.
Where you wear your ballgown as in the olden days and where you hang your partydress in the street after a night out in town!

Well...ok....I cheated. I didn´t have the time to take some foto´s this week and dived into our ´archives´.
I´m helping my friend who is directing a childrens movie this week. And I´m somewhat of a personal assistant, a shoulder to cry on, a listening ear and babysitter. It is exciting and ooh boy, so not my world. I love the quiet life and the filmbusiness is all but quiet. But I love the atmosphere and to see how a film is made.
I had to play a part only for rehearsal sake and I hated it!!!! Film makes you 10 pounds bigger and in my case I like to think it was actually 50 pound. If you ever want to make sure you keep your diet....go on film and you will go an a water and bread diet. Really!
She wanted to cast me as the ´crazy Dutch neighbour´. Well.. I can see where that comes from as I am Dutch and a neighbour and certainly crazy at times. But to play way.
I´m the girl that fell ´sick´ the moment she had to do something in front of the class and didn´t finish her study French because she was too afraid to be in front of a class. I´m shy and I always try to avoid that someone takes my picture. And then I should go act and be on film? Not gonna happpen! Somewhere deep inside me I wish I had the guts...but that is so deep I can´t be bothered. ;)
So I will be late this week to watch all the hip and maybe not so hip fashion around the world, but I´m looking forward to do my trip around the world and have a look at your blog.
Till then....have fun!

If you want to have a great trip around the world and watch the other Corner Views, look under Corner View in my sidebar! Be sure to visit Jane of Spain Daily, she´s the one who started this all!

  1. Love these pictures and I too will be late with the Street Fashion thing this week, mostly because i am too nervous to snap people in the streets!! and i have been very busy getting ready for our vacation. Will update soon though.. have fun with the film thing it fascinates me. hugs... Ali.

  2. I love these photos and very creative! It was hard asking people to snap photos of them. I too don't like my picture taken and broke down a tiny bit for the post. Remember I am labeled the crazy lady with the camera! LOL. xoxo

  3. LOVE YOUR PICS! And your comments! Ach ich verstehe, bin auch eher fuer mich und hinter der Kamera als davor...

  4. What great pics and the story about the film made my day. Thanks for the laugh.

  5. I love your street fashion! And the great explanation of why you are so busy this week! Wow - I can really relate!

  6. I'm shy as well and always hated when we were suppose to do plays in schools etc. I also don't like having a party for just me, you know the whole thing about being 'the center of the party'.... I'd love to try and be behind the scenes of a movie though, must be exciting!!

  7. I'd imagine acting would be an interesting experience, disregarding the sudden weight gain. Perhaps you'll find that you're less camera shy afterwords! Have fun!

  8. Geweldige fotos, heerlijk genieten weer even via jou en wat zie ik op afstand een baljurk!!! ;o)

  9. always fun stories at your place ... !!!

  10. wonderful pictures, love the figures watching the river go by, very peaceful. And what a fun/exhausting week for you, always such fun to do something completely different isn't it!

    Street fashion, well there's not alot of that round these parts. Think, beige slacks and beige tops and comfortable shoes...or full on farmer rural 'glamour' Hmm

  11. oh, those are fabulous images for street fashion! i love it!

  12. so jeannette. . . have you sat naked on the river spree? (are you serious?)

  13. Jeanette, your posts are always so creative! Your second photo is fantastic... we were in downtown Hamburg yesterday and saw as equally great statues and sites. I never get tired of it.

    Perhaps acting lessons would help your fear of the camera : ) ... but, sounds exciting just to watch.

  14. Ganz frech....

    Lade dich ein.....


    Mit machen!!!

    Weiter sagen!!!




  15. Très drôle, comme toujours ! bravo Jeannette. Bonne journée ; )

  16. I like this fashion !!! and, like for other corner views... the surprise !!! Passe une bonne journée Jeanette !

  17. hehe, that film story is great! have fun nevertheless!

    and how clever to come up with that street fashion idea. i'm still wondering if i can pluck up the courage to snap people in the street. i'm sure they'll think i'm completely bonkers and may end up being cast as the "crazy german neighbour" in your friend's next movie...

  18. Ik zit hier weer te schuddebuiken achter m´n PC met die humor van jou!! :D
    Die naakte dames en heren zitten in Aken ook bij een fonteintje ergens midden in de stad. Zou me niets verbazen als ze al een paar keer een serieuze zonnesteek gehad zullen hebben, haha!
    Je houdt er alleszins een interessant leven op na: filmsets, babysitter, city-hopper... Amuseer je!
    Bis bald, groetjes, Marjolijn

    Getting to see how a movie is made would also be exciting.

    Cheating is good; I'm planning on doing a bit of that this summer!
