GDR Roadrunners

Hello from my archives. Here some images from vehicles driven in the former GDR. Actually I have never made it to drive a Trabant or Wartburg. Friends told me that it was an unforgetable event to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3 Minutes.

Fortunately these environmental monsters disappeared from the streets because they were stinking terribly.

In December 2011 and last February I have been a couple of hours in Barcelona before heading north to the Pyrenees.

Beside the fantastic architecture to discover, this is a  paradise for street photography. Although in the economical crisis, this city is so dynamic and full of life. I drove from the airport to the Placa de Catalunya parking, passing one of the most terrible roundabouts in my life. Just by walking the streets around the Placa de Catalunya with  La Rambla, the cathedral, Mercado de San Jose and the Placa Reial gave me  great impressions – and photos.

Also the area around the El Prat Airport is wonderful to see. South of  Terminal 2 I found a nature reserve used by many citizens for walking, jogging and relaxing. Furthermore the community installed a platform for plane spotting (see  here all the places, I enjoyed staying at points 1,2,3).

Here some of my impressions from a 2 hours photowalk.
