A year ago, I was wandering Europe captivated by the streets. Yes, the streets themselves caught my eye. Their cobblestones and narrow corridors leading to hidden places or large squares and cathedrals. I imagined all the activity that has taken place on these streets in the hundreds of years they have been in existence.
From Paris to London
They all have their own character. Partly due to the architecture and automobiles but also because each city and country has its own unique essence. Which is evident in the streets.
In Rome, there are countless motorcycles and scooters. The streets of Zurich are lined with buildings adorned with shutters of angled patterned wood.
Chester, England near the border with Wales is a bustling medieval town.
The old city of Nice’s narrow streets are lined with shops and cafes.
Every city had the green cross sign advertising the location of the pharmacies in town dotted throughout.
At night they are just as intriguing. Especially when the streets are damp from a recent rain; adding a beautiful reflective quality.
I am sure it was spending so much time walking on these streets exploring the different neighborhoods which piqued my interest. It seemed around every corner was another street compelling me to capture its essence for that moment!
