This is a composition of gossamer-thin black lines standing out against the snow. This motif is well known from the work of André Kertész, the most famous photographer to portray the poetry of everyday life. Emil Otto Hoppé also mastered this stylistic device, as evidenced by this photograph, which he took in Green Park in 1927. At that time, virtually everyone would have passed by this scene without seeing a photograph in it.
