Continuing on the theme of photographic ideas, here's another image from a photo session in Zürich a couple of weeks ago, in which lighting played a key part in the shoot. The idea was born when I came across the unusual road markings in the middle of a four-way junction.

The Käfigturm – a city prison for several hundred years until 1897 – is now a pretty unique centre for events and exhibitions. The current exhibition on show is a collection of photographs selected for the Swiss Press Photo Award for 2008, which opened recently as a free exhibition and runs until 10th October. I took advantage of the adjacent tram stop and went to see the photos this lunchtime.
