This is wonderful! You have a great sense for composition in a seemingly everyday environment that I totally lack and admire. You create visual order from complete chaos. To me all of your pictures include that aspect in a sense.

I can actually feel the temperature and I can breathe the morning air, I can smell the flowers and the trees in the mist of the rising summer sun, including a little hint of those warm gasoline exhaust fumes... Especially after having arrived in Dubai this morning with its blistering heat and incredibly intense humidity this picture is like taking a deep drag of Aix-en-Provence.

However, referring to the composition, to me the most astonishing and impressive aspect of this photograph is how you created visual serenity with a spatial and at the same time somewhat flat composition. All these little details, the signposts, the poles and the lamps, as well as the curvature of the street, interact with one another to create a carpet of textures and colors which in whole keeps everything in balance. And I LOVE how the trees and the poles come up with a "natural" framing :)
