Great atmospheric shot. Reminds me of old french crime movies with Lino Ventura or Simone Signoret.

Tnx mr.P. for visit and Fantastic Comment!

I never expected before than such simple motif will be reason for emotional connections with old famous french movies! Sure, I seen few movies with L.Ventura, but can't recall episodes. But, I also understand, You speaking more about colours and feeling and not about exact drawing from street.

Let me say more, before this I have heard than Riga are unoficially called Petit Paris, but I thought then - they are more about fashion or food?

Now I have good feeling - 'cos I am proud, I living in small Paris! :D

to Simka: You're welcome to Riga! Just remember, wear warm and pick umbrella! :D

Cheers, - Ainars.

Very nice. I like the yellow light that kind of leads the attention to the tower.

Best regards from belgium - Hans
