We think of night as dark, but in cities, nights are full of light and color.
Each type of light source has its own color temperature ranging from warm oranges to yellow to white and cool blue hues. Jordano’s composition insets the homey, yellow warmth of the incandescent bulbs seen in the window into a broader swatch of cooler, harsher outdoor lighting. The outdoor lighting is so strong it creates a shadow for the tree, even at night.
