Street

Turn new into old

Last month I took some pictures at the Sechseläuten in Zürich. It is a parade of the guilds in historical costumes. I liked the colorful clothes but in the end I wanted to do something different with the pictures. I thought it would be fun to give them a historic look.

 

Twilight Zone

Off all the places in Zurich one keeps fascinating me so much that I find myself stopping by there on a regular basis. It is the Escher Wyss Platz. There is a bridge that crosses the river with tram tracks underneath, running in every direction. Stairs and elevators connect the tram station down on the street with the bus station on top of the bridge. The tram station is very busy, people are running to catch their connecting rides. Other than that the space feels empty.

The lighting underneath is so captivating that more than once I have left the tram just to walk around and soak the atmosphere in, watching the people pass by. No one ever stops, everybody is always on the move except when waiting for the elevator to the bus station.

I seem to be the only person who sees this place as something that is more than just a place to switch trams. Me, I keep coming back. This place makes me feel strangely connected and disconnected to the world at the same time, it’s my personal twilight zone.
