PHOTO DESCRIPTION

One night, standing at the corner of one of the medieval streets of Siena, I wondered how many thugs, thieves or mercenaries I could see pulling a knife out for a silver ducat if I had lived the 8 centuries lifetime of these walls.

Really dodgy feeling here, should be tourist advertising for leaving expensive cameras at home, love the tonality.

Now am going to wonder all night why this reminds me of Anselm Kiefer's canvases... the blackness... the suspense, the dark details in the light?

Après le réconfort, retour au front et la noirceur. Des murs pour être photographiés. Ils n'attendentait que toi. Ça à l'air superbe, çà donne envie d'y être. Bravo

While in Siena at night on deserted cobbled stone streets, I had visions of fascist boots ringing around the corner.  I share your thoughts.  Excellent tone separation again.
