Rita Crane Photography: Italy / Venice / monochrome / people / pigeons / Spring Afternoon, Piazza San Marco

Please do view this one large on black...click on the "+" . Click! Thank you!

  

Late winter turning into early spring....and the sunlight, despite the wind, was inviting people and pigeons to sit outside.

 

Several residents were walking briskly across the Piazza, bundled up against the cold breeze, going about their everyday business in their own city. I love all the patterns in this photo and how the black and white treatment brings them all out more than if the image were in color.

 

Below is an entirely different treatment of this scene! I made it into a square and added texture and color layers to it.
