    Just a collection of "fassade decorations" I detected while wandering around parts of Hamburg (tried to also go to the much less touristy parts this time):

    Wow, Corinna, looks like you wandered into a very 'bohemian' part of town there! :) What did these shops used to be before they closed down? Tattoo parlours or something?

    I like these shots, particularly #2, for the guy on the bike, #4, 6 & 7. Nicely done :)

    Two and Three, they could be anywhere in Europe if not in the world. This doesn't look like Germany to me. I thought it was such a clean country. You've just destroyed my illusions! Your tourist board won't be very happy with you. :)

    Wow, you've got some great urban scenes there! Wish our graffiti were that interesting!

    Thanks so much, all of you :goodvibe:
    So sorry to have burst your bubble, alexecho. Ever so sorry.
    The tourist board will never put any of these AREAS even into their brochures ... though that is not quite true. St. Pauli (which is where most of these were taken) is a very well-known area of Hamburg!
    As to the row of houses captured in Photo 2 I doubt it will be there for very much longer. Many of those houses are practically empty these days (at least they made this impression on me - I think I got a pic of the rear part of this house, too). The shops/parlours in there were ... I don't know? Pubs? Tattoo parlours - possibly...?

    Amazing series Corinna. The colours are great.
    It is funny how we get to see other parts of the world through the forum, and even if it is so far away, there are scenes that are like our own home.
    We have areas that are covered in graffitti here too. It always makes me wonder who did it, or when, cause they never seem to get caught.

    Oh yes, of course you may forward these to your sons. I feel honoured (more so should the graffiti-artists, but - as Chiller is saying - they are hardly known in most cases).
