One autumn day navigatiig instinctively in Paris I missed my direction, found myself at the Arc de Triomphe and decided to climb to the top. The day was predominantly gloomy but here and there patches of sunlight lit up distant buildings. I couldn't see this very well because I have a damaged optic nerve, but my digital camera came to the rescue and I was able to view it retrospectively. These unexpected visions of a great city dissolving into the mist appealed to me. Working with pale colours and close tones I was reminded of those still lifes by Morandi. From a few bottles, a box and a jug he was able to evoke a kind of mysterious architecture.
