In one of the narrow, winding streets around the great cathedral of Chartres, I spotted this slightly disconcerting sign featuring a baby. The presence of the passing pedestrian helped to make the shot.
A butcher’s window display that I spotted in one of the narrow streets of the San Polo neighbourhood of Venice. The big hand-written sign ‘Oggi c’e il capretto’ means ‘Today we have kid [as in kid goat]’ and there it is, hanging right in the middle.
Cee’s latest Black & White challenge calls for something beginning with either B or W. Well, here is an image of a bicycle propped up against a brick wall in Bruges. Which, come to think of it, is in Belgium.
Oh, and what do bicycles have? Why, wheels of course. So make that four for the price of one.
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.
