A dark figure walks along the edge of a snow-covered street at night. The top edge of a wall along the street and a tree are just barely visible on the left-hand side of the scene. The buildings across the center of the frame recede into the darkness. Just ahead of the figure is a large panel of windows, which glow with yellow light from within. Above the black mass of the buildings is a bit of the sky, which is painted a very dark blue.
