CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
The image depicts a cityscape with a figure in a blue jacket with a yellow stripe (clothing) standing at a street corner in front of a bus stop. The bus stop is marked by a yellow and black circular sign and there is a traffic light on the street corner behind that. There is a stone building on the right side in the foreground with a set of stairs and an iron railing descending onto the sidewalk. Black, bare tree branches are hanging over the figure's head, coming from around the side of the building in the upper half of the image. In the background, a red building sits across the street and there is a car and person walking in the street on the left. A muted sun is sitting in the sky in the distance on the left.
