Madonna on the Wall

On the Schanzenstraße in Hamburg, some old buildings belonging to the street life in the Sternschanze have been demolished some time ago. It was done to make space for new expensive freehold apartments. So sadly hipsters moving to the Schanze because of its history as a alternative neighbourhood are actually forwarding it’s disassembling. They are just paying way above average rents which drives the old establishment out of the quarter.
So in this construction area some talented street artist sneaked behind the fences and painted a gypsy madonna on the wall, I couldn’t have left unphotographed!
On here Cloak it says: “I miss the shadows of the skyscrapers...”
