Step by step…
The former ‘CircusGrounds’ are rapidly changing.
Gone the view over the dogs-owned meadow.
The sun is hidden behind new walls, and thus the streets have darkened.
More concrete, more houses, more people will show up here soon.
‘New shit on the block’.

Almost every car you would see on the streets in the countries behind the iron curtain back in the eighties were from the brands Lada or Trabant. In 1989 the wall in Berlin had just fallen and borders became easier to cross. To give a personal touch and make a difference to your Trabant, people had for example an additional antenna mounted or maybe were fortunate enough to own the ‘Sport’ edition.
Or… at least they had this sticker on the back window.

Look at what the ‘heavy traffic’ looked like around Arc de Triomphe in the centre of Paris twenty-eight years ago.

It may look like the guy on the left is reading his iPad. But…
‘No mobiles yet, so what do you do?’
Just stare and think over the day that has gone by like the other guy on the right.
May 1989, @ the underground, London, United Kingdom.
Everyone’s hiding in black or grey, well I prefer to drive in RED instead! ❤️

Two of my entrances for the ‘I want to ride my bicycle’ theme, in a Facebook photographic community both taken on the city-isle of Nijmegen last week.
Going home at the end of the day.
…but my Ferrari is so much faster.
