Zurich Altstadt: Signs & Figures.

I suppose you can’t really ‘get’ the soul of a city, a spirit of place, from a (literally) flying visit, a one-day random perambulation through streets and squares, along the river and over its bridges, beside its churches and fountains – and yet, as I mentioned in my first post on Zurich, there is a tone, a mood, a coloration of stone and air that is quite specific.

I felt it in the signs and emblems, from the sacred to the quotidian and downright silly, and saw it even in the people, who themselves in my imagining became signs of Zurich.

Here are some images.
