The lure of satisfaction.

Yesterday I spend a lovely day in beautiful Zürich meeting with a new friend (http://stampfliturci.posterous.com/).  We spend the day discussing art, drinking coffee and exploring some of the sights around town.  Zürich is Switzerlands unofficial capital and has always been one of my favourite towns. A great place to hunt subjects with my camera, in and around the famed Bahnhofstrasse, one the worlds most expensive shopping street.  Here, the lure of capitalism and perceived satisfaction is ever present.

 

Bahnhofstrasse

 

–>

  The eyes that mock me sign the way
Whereto I pass at eve of day.
 

Grey way whose violet signals are
The trysting and the twining star.
 

Ah star of evil! star of pain!
Highhearted youth comes not again
 

Nor old heart’s wisdom yet to know
The signs that mock me as I go.
 

James Joyce
