Ivan Cash alias @shwizle has asked New Yorkers what the last photo on their phone was. The answer: a lot.
“I’m fascinated by all of these human stories that are inherently non-curated and unfiltered,” Cash told the „Atlantic“. He has asked the same in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Although it is not exactly a secret spot anymore, the Spreepark
is one of the most magic places in Berlin. It’s mystic, it’s abandoned and it’s most certainly a piece of old Eastern Berlin. You should visit some time soon and bring your camera – because rumour has it that the city-state is looking to get hold of the area and turn it into an appartment block.
For background reads on the story of the amusement park and the family who runs it:

Kensington Palace, home to two successors to the throne.
This is the front of Café Diana on Wellington Terrace. It’s the first thing you see when leaving Kensington Palace Gardens – the road leading to the home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. And apparently they are pretty fond of their highborn neighbours.
