I really like the color in each of these shots. Also, the first shot is my favorite. Nice contrast with the buildings and water.

Even on a cloudy day you were able to bring some very nice colors into the images. Lovely shots VP.

I love all the colors in all of these photos. Love the buildings in the first photo and the bright flowers in the last one.

The bend is a beauty. Hommes et Femmes... What a strange display... I wonder if any of those paintings are going to appear here with the photographed view!

I love the display in the third photo - very stylish. The basket is funny and cheering, but my favourite is the first shot, I love it!

Interesting, the Fosso Reale bend. Lovely capture of the Virgin Mary and I really would like to own those WC signs.

Francisca said...

Hmmm... I used to export those WC signs from Asia. :-) As a photo, I like the bright pink florals on the bike. Yet my favorite photo today is the top one... I like the colours, the composition, the way the buildings are not at right angles, the water, well, everything.

VP said...

@ ciel - Maybe, but it is always the same place around “Scali delle Ancore”...

@ JM - That is an image of the “Madonna di Montenero”, the patron saint of Tuscany.

@ Francisca - This is just great!
