Sunday Surreal Serendipity

I made a mistake this morning when I arrived at Albert's cafe just beside Charlottenburg S-Bahn station expecting to go to a social Meet-up called Sunday Coffee. I'd enjoyed it last week and talked to some interesting people so I thought I'd go again. But I got there at the wrong time. I should have had a Sunday sleep-in because it was not starting until 3 pm, not 11 am, But by happy coincidence they were just starting their Sunday brunch which I can say was the most delicious range of traditional breakfast, lunch and desserts. For €12:95 it fed me for the day and an hour later I needed to burn off some of it, so I walked up to the Scharf-Gerstenberg Collection which is a galler of surreal paintings including works by, Giorgio De Chirico, Rene Magritte, Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, George Grosz, Man Ray and many others, and today was the last day of the exhibition. What a piece of luck to have happened on it by chance and what a treasure  trove of art. I started out to photograph just a few of the best but there were so many there. I think the surreal sculpture "Capricorne" by Max Ernst was my favourite.
