"What makes the very first glimpse of a village, a town, in the landscape so incomparable and irretrievable is the rigorous connection between foreground and distance. Habit has not yet done its work. As soon as we begin to find our bearings, the landscape vanishes at a stroke like a façade of a house as we enter it.
It has not yet gained preponderance through a constant exploration that has become habit. Once we begin to found our way about, that earliest picture can never been restored".
Walter Benjamin “One way street”.
