Pick & Mix Paint, Venice

Newer Older

A quick imperfect posting to inject some colour into my photostream ahead of some winter images.

There are many nicer versions of this kind of picture already on Flickr, but this one is mine! Powder paint in a Venetian shop window, shot low light and handheld - so an enforced DOF choice. This version is pretty much as shot, though I did have a lot of fun playing with the white balance to create improbable palettes of colours, all undone before posting.

It seemed to be bought by weight from this pick and mix style display, which was rather fun.

    like this composition that adds color to life !
    thanks for all the nice comments on my pics.
    The 'Stupa' mentioned by you is a actually a temple.
    Stupa is entirely different
    you will find many a stupa in my Nepal series.
    'Stupa' is essentially Buddhist term and Temple is a Hindu terminology for place of God.
