ha, cool theme, i have fun here sometimes with the swiss... my brother flew from canada into paris, and then he took a train to basel switzerland... he laughed and said "hey, we're in switzerland" but he didn't realise he'd just crossed the border, he just saw how clean everything was here in comparison to france...

but once you've been in a place for a while you notice all the little things... graffiti here is ALL over the place, it's even in the nicest bars in town, it's all over the railways... i've seen trains covered from head to toe with graffiti, some of it very cool by the way

cities are amazing for their graffiti.

nice shot, colours look good, exposure fine... no highlights in the reflections, sweet :+fav:

Thanks a lot. I remember when i visited Switzerland and I too felt like something was strangely odd about the cleanness (is that even a word? :D) in there, i only spent a day there so i only remember that it was clean and quiet there but you are absolutely right once you get to know a place you start noticing these things, which are sometimes even for the better ;)

Thanks a lot for taking the time to comment. :hug:
