Light Reveals Architecture

Every place has “its own” light which makes it different from any other place in the world. The rhythm of light and darkness, of fair and cloudy, of clear and overcast is not the same in Sarajevo and in Dubrovnik, in New York and in Tokyo… The summer time gift is much brighter and cheerful in Dubrovnik than it is in Sarajevo because sea surface and white stone reflect sunlight. On the other hand, a winter day in Sarajevo can be much brighter than day in far warmer Dubrovnik, because of reflecting light of the landscapes covered with snow.
