For this week’s entry to Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge, here is an image from Venice, which does feature a road (‘Calle’) leading down to the Grand Canal, although it’s a moot point whether the road is the principal focus for the gentleman on the left.
The high contrast from the strong shadows works well in Black & White, I think, as does the highlighted texture of the walls.
Last year, we had a dead oak tree at the bottom of one of our fields. Patrice, the local forestier, cut it down for us and turned it into logs for our woodburning stoves. This year, it’s helping to keep us warm.
