Zurich is such a beautiful town. Although I made this photograph last month, I can’t see this scene without being reminded of a visit I made several years ago.
I was staying very near here when I went out for an early Sunday morning walk. The city appeared deserted. In fact, the only other person I saw was an older gentleman fishing from the bridge. While the scene was indeed beautiful & quiet and peaceful, it created a real sense of loneliness. There I was in this wonderful place, but I was alone & missing my wife.
Just as I approached the bridge, the church bells started ringing & echoing throughout alleyways of the old town. It immediately brought back a lyric from a wonderful song by Kris Kristofferson;
“Sunday Morning Coming Down”
“…Then I headed down the street,
And somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringing,
And it echoed through the canyon
Like the disappearing dreams of yesterday… ”
