A tramway stop after midnight, a sign telling us that it’s been temporarily relocated. Cedric felt reminded of a stage and I guess I know why.

Handheld at 1/5 s and ISO 1250. The full size is on Flickr.

The Song of the Day is “All Alone” from Doris Day’s “Love Album”. Hear it on YouTube.

  1. I do like this image. I kept it on a tab of my browser for a long time when I first saw it on Flickr and would just look at it every now and then. There’s a lot to like in it. It has me wondering what kind of rooms might be behind the curtains. If this is a private residence, it would be odd to have your windows right there, at street level, next to a tram stop. You’d never be able to open your curtains 🙂

    • Yes, people have lived behind such windows. Here in Vienna it is a typical janitor’s dwelling street-facing on ground floor. Of course there are almost no janitors any more and most of these one- or two-room apartments are empty now. Sad places, really, then and now.
