Street life. I have soooo many pictures of streets, alleys, neighborhoods… lots of things that can interpret “street life” for this week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post. This week I selected a photo from the streets of Essen, Germany. I was there in 2007 when I was chasing The Love Parade – a huge party that takes place on the streets of Berlin typically. After 2006, The Love Parade was forced to leave Berlin… and ended up making its way around different Germany cities in those years following. Obviously, Essen typically wouldn’t be so infested with party-goers and flyers as it is pictured here. But the chalk art on the ground was what struck me: bold and colorful and surrounded by the words “thank you” in many different languages. Pretty cool documentation of Essen’s part in the Love Parade dynasty if you ask me.
