It's a terrific urban landscape, and my only complaint is the lack of a human subject.

Well done!

For an Atget-ish shot like this a human subject is not needed because the viewer gets pulled in and becomes the proxy subject. Moreover, the caption about the families that live there also cause the mind to furnish a human presence.

The human does not have to be visually present in each and every street photos. And in too many street photos the human figure provides no human presence at all.

Always view all photos in Gallery or Original Size

Atget-ish <- can you give me explanation for this expression as I haven't come across it before.

Thank you both for the kind words on this 'snapshot' though. It was actually more to remind my self to be grateful I took it
