At first, this looked to me like a photo from the days of black and white that has been colored as people sometimes did. Like a photograph postcard from the 1940s. But then you think about the architecture in the background and the modern look of cars and people. I think it is very interesting because people have other ideas about it, but it's also an appealing photo as well.
I just want to add to this shot.. The nice part about this I suddenly noticed is the switch of moods between the top and the bottom, in the bottom of the pic, you see trees and it looks cozy and warming, it gives you a nice feeling.
Looking at the other half... I get kinda sad and lonely. Like theres nobody and I'm alone on the world.
