Urban Spring

Apple Blossom Time
in the city

Natur and
Urban graffiti

Looking Up
The skies are
of the deepest blue

A Square within the Square
Behind the busy market place,
benches and basketball hoops
invite to quiet contemplation
or a quick ball game.

Simply Looking Up
may be all you need
for a relaxing market day experience
