Looks like Jacques Brel is it! I tried but couldn't access the UTube. No mind... the image by itself is splendid enough.

I had to Google this line as I'm unfamiliar with the song.
You have met the challenge well with the soft focus, high key and relevance of image to lyrics.
I have now enjoyed listening to this song as sung by Jaques Brel, thank you for expanding my musical appreciation.

Buildings reduces to stylized shapes make a good cityscape. Don't know the song. Have to look it up. 6

Coming back to do some commenting and as I look at this closer it appears to be a toy setup or miniature. Odd yet intriguing.
