Yesterday I went to the RAW flea market at Revaler Straße in Friedrichshain. I actually even went out before having breakfast, because I wanted to beat the crowds. In the end it turned out that it wasn’t so special anyway and I probably would have found more interesting things at the Mauerpark flea market, where we were last week. This one seemed more like people selling their old clothes rather than anything really interesting. Although I didn’t find anything, it was still a nice change of pace, because I rarely ever go to that area of Berlin. It also gave me an opportunity to check out the area, which seems like an abandoned industrial estate that is mostly used by young artists now. There was the most amazing graffiti everywhere and I finished off the roll of film that I had in my Zorki. Now I can finally get it developed and see how the pictures turned out.

I had a few interesting pictures yesterday and found it very hard to choose. That’s something I look forward to at the end of this project: Not having to choose! From August onwards I’ll just post all the pictures I like and not only just one picture.

    • Thanks Tammy! Unfortunately I don’t know the story, but it looks to me as if the cowboy slipped on a banana peel 😉 The place was full of such quirky artwork.

  4. That graffiti is WILD… wow! SO cool!
    Hahaha… unfortunately having more than one image I like to choose from is not typically a problem for me…

    • Indeed, it is! There is lots more to find out there. Berlin really has a busy street art scene 🙂

      I actually tend to have more than one picture that I like. For now I’m posting them on G+, but once I got my 365, they’ll go up here as well.
