The hazy air made the street light cones visible. That is what attracted me first. Then I saw the shop on the corner and it looked so desolate, so much like a very early morning street should be that I could not resist fetching a camera and pressing the shutter button. Again, I used a short telephoto lens to slightly compress the perspective and give a three dimensional effect on what is in fact a flat succession of layers of darkness. For me it is at the same time slightly frightening and it would push me to go out and wander around the empty city.
