Night Hawks

I have to switch trains. I have a look around …

D-14-602

… and decide to skip the last one.

D-14-1126

I know the place, know the cathedral. I go for a walk.

D-14-1038

D-14-1033

Shops are closed for the night, …

D-14-1034

D-14-1035

… museums too; …

D-14-1037

… only ice parlours …

D-14-1040

D-14-1044

… and an entrepreneur keeps going.

Some faces never tire …

… while others work the night shift …

D-14-1052

D-14-1084

I walk alone, pass a trick of the light, …

… silent machines¬† …

D-14-1094
