This morning I was looking at the Camera feed from the rebuilt Berlin Palace known as the Humboldt Forum and on the top of the dome of the palace stood a man. The dome is about to be completed with a new copper roof and later a lantern will be topping it. This fellow was probably seen by a lot of people in central Berlin. He is probably one of the roofers who work up there. The only way to get there is by the top of the dome a trap door opens up at the summit. What a photo! It must have been very windy up there. It was 6 C today and partially cloudy.

This next photo is from the second courtyard of the Palace. Called the Portal IV of the Berlin Palace. The cartouche below the gold crown has the letters F.W. for Frederick Wilhelm, who was King of Prussia from 1786-1797 builder of the Brandenburg Gate.
