Big City Idyll - Viktoria Luise Platz, Berlin

I observe the way people walk. I want to know how they relate to their surroundings.
Me, I walk with my head up high, so I don' t miss the shape of fun clouds. This one looked like a big smurf, or GrisĂș, the little firefighter dragon...

Lots of places in Berlin have the name "Platz" (square), but they are all quite different from the squares you might expect in Italy or France.
This is one of the few I consider a "real" square, even though its form is rather that of a circle. 

Here you can sit for a chat, eat some ice-cream, be hypnotized by the fountain's dancing jets and listen to the sound of the subway that runs just below your feet.
