A different camera, an altered frame of mind, a short time-frame ... perhaps all of these things combine and allow me to see the city with new eyes.
There is more curiousity in my gaze. And more work involved in capturing the shots that I want.
Then there's the naked, almost black, winter limbs on the trees and they have been challenging me too. I have wanted to capture the familiar things I see beyond them. They partially obscure, offering up a new way of seeing this castle, that clock ... and that is intriguing me too.
