Another series of composites: Tate. No relation to any gallery of the same name — the location is outside the Tate shop near the corner of Hamburg Gänsemarkt and ABC-Straße, a store offering designer clothes (Paul Smith T-Shirts at DM 70.-, etc). Time is 15:30 on a Saturday, half an hour before shops close for the weekend. We are looking into the street with Hamburg's most expensive clothes shoppes (Versace one of them, I believe).

The first image is not a composite but the original photograph that triggered the series.
