Winter light in Zurich

Winter light in Zurich

The winter Sun baths the city with a pretty horizontal sunlight!

This is a view from Züriberg, close to the zoo, looking towards Zürich and the lake.




Whenever I see this photo, I always look at it wondering who was there having some sparkling wine and water. Even more, what were they talking about? Were they chitchatting or deep thoughts filled their minds? Did they choose the bar randomly ? Are they now having dinner inside?

Inside, people, sound, light, food. Outside, nobody, silence, shadow, empty glasses. Two different time lines in a frame.



This evening started to rain in Zurich. I love when it is time to go to bed and rains. The kind of rain that falls almost as a caress, following with no hurry the shape of the buildings, trees and people.

I love specially being in bed nicely covered, with the window slightly open and listen.The dripping sound of the water falling from the gutter to the balcony railing, the water running through the gutter, the rain drops on the leaves of the trees and the rain drops falling directly on the ground.

Like an improvised composition, a jam-session made by water falling in different ways, directed by Gravity and played by the Low-pressure System band.

In the photo there is part of the railing of my balcony with an old tea pot that collects rain water.

Nighty night…
