I rummaged through my photo archive for today’s theme on “street” and chose a picture I had taken this summer in Berlin.
I was fascinated with the Berlin Wall and its path dividing the city, now marked by brick in the road or sidewalk. Sometimes the Wall seemed to follow on odd path in its odd division of the city.
Sections of the Wall had been preserved and on this street, ironically it was protected from souvenir seekers behind a wire fence. In the foreground is the path of the 2nd wall – marked by the narrow contrasting band of brick. In the middle, now clogged with pedestrians or cars, was the no-man’s land – or “kill zone”.
I had not been aware there had been a double wall and I found this visible reminder very chilling.
