I decided to post this photo just because:
1) it was taken on the same day (March 16) in 2008...
2) it was a wonderful sunny spring day (although a bit cold and very windy as well!)
And I really wonder what the weather is like right now, today, in Zurich! just the same? or there's some snow left around?
3)I didn't find a similar shot posted on TE :-)
In the photo:
Globus department store in Bahnhofstrasse.
On the left, in front of Globus: a monument to Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi (January 12, 1746 – February 17, 1827) who was a Swiss pedagogue and educational reformer.
In 1899, the Lucerne sculptor, Hans Siegwart, erected a monument to Pestalozzi on the only green area along the Bahnhofstrasse, in front of the present-day Globus department store.
It stands – it could hardly be more fitting – on what used to be a schoolyard. (source: www.zuerich.com)
In the Workshop: 2 additional photos:
1) the monument to Pestalozzi
2) a shot of what this ground looked like in 2009..... also on the 16th!.. of July :)
NB: this is my last post before my holiday.
I am leaving in several days, and before the departure I have to do some really urgent work again :((
My bosses don't care at all if I am already tired...
Anyway I'll try to find some free time to come to TE!

A well composed and framed shot.
The combination of blue and white works well in this shot.
The woman looks as if she is battling the wind.
Have a good holiday.

Weather service coming your way, this year still 2 or 3 months to go before spring and it snowed this morning, so to get luminous pictures good you visited in 2008 !
I see you went shopping... Zürich has very high prices but this still might be cheap compared to the Gum
Have a nice day JY

Spring will indeed be a little late this year, so I can see why you have had to choose an older picture! A very fine street view!

Three good reasons to post this photo today. ;) This also is an attractive and well composed photo with a lovely spring atmosphere, beautiful light and colours and excellent sharpness. TFS!

Hello my dear Elena
Stable and nice composition/framework, sharp/clear description in the detail as usual.
The blue and white color tone is very comfortable.
You did a great job again indeed!
Thanks for sharing and have a good day.

Boa noite Elena
I read and studied about Pestalozzi in my course at University. Very good to see the monument although we can't see it very well.As always, a note very interesting.

Good morning Elena,
This picture is actually a spring. This year you can only dream of such weather on the same day in March. Yesterday I was snowing and cold -5 degrees Celsius. Even today, snow is in arrears in the shade. Nice, clean frame with good composition. Fantastic blue sky here introduces many optimistic mood. Very good sharpness. On the left side of the natural border of the crown of the tree. One member profile very interesting word picture in a great performance.
Have a nice day,
P.S. I wish you health and leisure!

Very pleasant colours, but I can see from the woman's warm clothes that it was still rather chilly. The budding leaves on the tree indicate however that spring is not too far away. Stockholm today, or rather yesterday, has not reached anywhere as far as this.

March in Zurich looks very warm and bright,
the sun light and the air there make this clear city view,
cubic department store building and queer figures of fore trees are making joyful contraction in this scene,
red signs are accent points as usual in your shot,
and the walking old lady shows me that is a live town not a dead model town...
anyway, the clear sky knows everything in this town,
thank you for your wonderful shot,
