I love this shot, it makes me think about how little we know of each other.
When I look at this, I see buildings, terraces, rooftop gardens, but we cannot see the people living there, their lives inside these elegant structures are a mystery. How much must be going on right before our eyes, but under a veil? Maybe two lovers are enjoying a day in bed, or an elderly man is preparing to go for a stroll, just for some fresh air. Perhaps a young woman anticipates for the upcoming night out, a concert?, dinner? Maybe a man just told his girlfriend that he loves her for the first time, maybe she says it back. Clinking of glasses, shuffling of slippers, running water- the ebb and flow that continues past the split second of a photo moves swiftly, waiting for no one.
