Contradictions of perspective. Contrasts of light. Contrasts of form. Points of view impossible to achieve in drawing and painting. Foreshortenings with a strong distortion of the objects, with a crude handling of matter. Moments altogether new, never seen before. Compositions whose boldness outstrips the imagination of painters.
— Alexander Rodchenko said that

The street-lights draw you to the bridge, and the buildings on the right seem to add to the persepctive

WHen I saw your title all I could think of was the song, Walking in Memphis. I like how the quote informs your image.

Seems to epitomise the open road – arriving and departing.

I’m always so impressed with the quotations you seek out and discover (or likely RE-discover).
