Big Door in Kreuzberg, Berlin - iPhone PG3D Model
Description: Stumbled upon this lovely door while on a walk through the Kreuzberg district in Berlin. Mid-capture, a middle-aged woman came up to me, exclaiming, “It is so ugly what they have done! It is a shame! It is a shame!”
I’d always liked Berlin because of it the liberal amount of street art and graffiti you find on almost every building; it has give the city that grungey vibe that attracted me to it in the first place.
But this woman had an interesting take. She had lived here for a long time, most likely born during or after WWII. She has seen Berlin go from a war torn city, to being rebuilt by the Allies and the Soviets, and as the Soviet regime came to an end, a place for political and artistic anarchy.
One woman’s trash is another’s treasure
