It would have taken magic of one kind or another to get that crazy cascade or electic wires out of my picture. I was, after all, interested in the balcony. I mean, look at that balustrade; iron swirling in a generous arc the likes of which I had never seen anywhere else. If I'd been able to make the wires vanish (and gauze and those wooden masts) I'd have done it.
I'd still love to have that picture, the one without the cascade of rainbow colored cabeling. But this is the one I have, and I'm inclined to accept that as it is.
