The story behind the image

Yesterday I shared a panorama view of Zurich in Switzerland. Here’s another shot of the city. It shows the view from Bellevue (which literally means ‘nice view’) towards the Bürkliplatz with the Swiss National Bank in the background.

On that day, there was a big wheel on the Bürkliplatz, and I found it hilarious to have a fun ride and the Swiss National Bank in one image. Also present in the photo: a tram (note the beautiful sun reflections) and – of course – a large Swiss national flag. And as a bonus: a pedal boat on the lake, so it must have been quite warm on that day.

Not a great shot but I like it anyway for the subtly hidden hints.
