Jack, Fred,

many thanks for your comments.

@Fred: the rigid geometry was in a way part of my concept - thought "concept" may be a bit too heavy word - it was partly my reaction to the grid of streets, the right angles we surround ourselves with and partly certainly influenced by the documentary style of many 20th century photographers.

However, you are raising a very valid point. While I think, for this small series it may work ok (in a way as an opposition to the delicate colors and shadows), I should avoid getting "trapped" in the rectangles. Although, I'd fear (well, too heavy word again), that I lose structure and cohesion with a more free flowing approach, it's definitely worth taking the "risk" - so, your comment definitely is an impulse to reach beyond the visual vocabulary I've used here (and in fact may be a bit too often meanwhile...).

This one got my attention, sorta triangle theme here as well. Further I like how the dark ground light wall combo is repeated upside down on those windowd. Soft light and color vs well defined window frames adds to the whome. Not to forget the nicely positioned lamp shadow.

A whole series based on the geometrics of architectural features in the faint winter light. They work together beautifully as a set.
