This is my third aquarium foto of bistro/resto culture of Budapest. This one is a recently reopened restaurant 'Dunapark' [literally Danube park] originally designed in Bauhaus style and operated in the 1930s.
The two stairs are reflecting on one of the glass tables put outside. It is springtime in Budapest, when wheather is perfectly calm and balsamic, flowers are blooming so terrasses flood the ramblas, and parks.
I hope you like my doubled composition.
When evening is coming
When evening is coming,
it is good to walk.
I am just walking on the streets
and looking in windows.
Inside, beyond sheet-glasses,
people are moving
like fishes in the aquarium,
when we switch the light up.
When it becomes really dark,
it is good to swim into
my own aquarium.
Somebody says: Hello.
Where have you been?
I reply: I just walked.
And I think, now I am also
a fish in a lighted basin,
and I think of those who are looking in,
who has no light-box
to warm up;
all the foxes and rabbits,
the homeless cats
It is a Swedish contemporary free poeme of Ingrid Sjöstrand for children, unfortunately I did not found the original version but a Hungarian translation, here I provide my translation. Please send me a better version if you have.

Your aquarium photos are full of interest and your approach is humourous. We are
all like fish swimming between aquariums. Tfs, Marlene

I really pity homeless cats, though!
As for the foxes - they will find their way in life.
As for the people - it strongly depends!!!
So, about the photo - such kind of shot is perfect for TL also, I think.
Very interesting one, and note makes it even more interesting!

I like very much this photo. At first sight very graphical to reveal after a moment a moltitude of little worlds inside each element.
Very good eye!
