Strasbourg and the light of autumn

The autumn light enters from the south east at breakfast time through the old panes at Cafe Brant in Strasbourg. Later it warms its dwellers in their Saturday morning shopping forays.

It too baths the sandstone facade with textures and comes through the high steel glass panes of the cathedral of Strasbourg to reflect on the rows of idle chairs that await the believers.

In a side hall the astronomical clock of the cathedral of Strasbourg and the computer gears left and right of the central clock tower remind us of an old view of the universe, before Einstein and Hawkins inspired so many cientists into more comprehensive and unfathomable views.

The tram line running between Germany and France through the streets and over the Rhine passes along views of steel and sandstone lit on halogen light in Strasbourg under the autumn cold rain.
