Like a city in a dream.
Like a flash of scenery.
At a moment where memory and the senses intermingle,
Feelings for the beauty is left behind.

Like a signpost or a traffic light to guide the times.
Like a portrayal or a vision of the city.
Photography, so true that one would want to look away,
Shows the mirrored heart.

As each picture in a dream is different,
Cities in the photographs vary with each person.

gI Love Art 8h
