I thought that a bit of black and white photography (with an HDR touch) could be the perfect tool to convey the moment-out-of-time aspect. Here, a balloon is ready for launch.

The old buildings have a smallness to them that I appreciated: the distance between stories was not so large, and they feel on more of a human scale.
