Incredible shots of a unique city with a very interesting character. Thank you for sharing!

So different to the Northern French cities.

Looks like a city from Northern Africa (Tunisia or Algieria?!?!)

Chaotic yet exotic!

The most exotic of the French cities. Marseille already had architecturally and culturally a very Mediterranean look and fell before the major waves of immigrants from North Africa and than Subsaharan Africa. But now, after that, Marseille looks especially Mediterranean but almost as much Maghreb or Middle-East Mediterranean than Spanish-, Italian- or even Greek-Mediterranean.

And hanging clothes outside on windows that face the street is also very Mediterranean.

Fantastic pictures. In 2007 i went for 1 day to Marseille and the city surprised me positivly. A bit filthy/ chaotic, but also nice, old and very southerner atmosfere. Your pictures are amazing!
