Is it "street photography" when you're not on a street?

On this sunny spring Sunday, the cherry trees were in full bloom and the pretty pink petals were falling gently like snowflakes.

I noticed that most of the people who were picnicking in the park were Asians. I suppose this reminds them of their native country? For me it was an unusual scene, since Germany does not have a large Asian population.

Only 12% (approx 114,000 of almost 1 million) * residency permits for Germany were issued to immigrants from east/southeastern Asian countries such as China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Indonesia...
