Black Bird

Noch ein Überbleibsel der ehemaligen DDR - eine schwarze Schwalbe, gesehen in Heslach. Und zwar in der Hohentwielstraße, die hier am Heslacher Friedhof entlangführt. Vielleicht deshalb Schwarz ...?
Another residue of the ancient G.D.R. - a black moped named "Schwalbe" (swallow) seen in Heslach. I've shooted it in a street which runs alongside a cemetery. Maybe the rider has choosed this colour because of this fact ...

It is a cure moped. I also like the color black or red for these kinds of bikes.

Enjoy this day. It was your future yesterday.

First a trabi, then a Wartburger, now a Schwalbe - fascinating pieces of DDR history! I went thru FredrichstraBe and Checkpoint Charlie several times...
