herzverstreut_bu: (Misc - hedwig - the new berlin wall)
Along the Spree in Friedrichshain district a stretch of the Berlin Wall, the so-called East Side Gallery was preserved and painted by artists as a memorial. Over the years, the painting have cracked and faded, and tourists and Berliners alike have added their own little graffiti - quotes, names, greetings, the usual. I love the way that those inscriptions have made it a bit of a memorial to the many different people in this city as well, and when I heard that the city was planning on restoring the original paintings, I kept meaning to go to the Gallery and take some pictures of my favourite graffiti, before they were removed. Last night I had an hour to kill in the area before meeting up with [livejournal.com profile] paraka*, so I went down there. Sadly, half of the wall has already been cleaned, but I want to share some of what could be found on there. Image-heavy!



Love is all you need. Anarchy is the answer. Fly like a mouse. )

*Meeting [livejournal.com profile] paraka is a whole different story, because she's one of my oldest LJ friends and getting to meet her was awesome. ♥
