Mhelene (Villiers-sur-Marne, France) on 27 January 2016 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Le canal Saint-Martin a été vidé pour être nettoyé pour enlever les déchets - de toutes sortes - jetés dedans , désenvaser et entretenir les écluses . Les poissons ont été pêchés et relachés en aval du canal .L'entretien dure 4 mois , jusqu'en avril.

The Saint-Martin canal was emptied to be cleaned, to remove waste - of all kinds - thrown inside, to remove the mud and to maintain locks. Fishes were fished and released downstream to the canal .The maintenance lasts 4 months, until April.

L'attitude d'une partie des habitants de notre pays est une plaie et porte tort à l'ensemble de ceux qui vivent en France.
Lorsque je vois certaines image de reportage, autant que lors de mes balades en forêt, quand je vois le bord des routes ou les trottoirs des villes, j'ai honte d'être français.
Merci pour cette image.

Some have a strange desire to throw all kinds of goods waterways. They should be required to dive them back.

A fabulous image! Makes you wonder how the bike got there. Was it thrown in there or did the rider fall off and it went into the canal. We will never know! It sort of has a sad feeling.

outsidersworld from Everywhere, Germany

interesting to see and photographed ... It's outrageous how some people pollute the environment ... in spite of everything, the broken wheel is exactly next to the bike ... it seems as if a leash is next ... maybe there between bicycle and dog leash, a relationship ???
