Six Word Saturday: Somewhere in Lazio, not sure where

Lost in the mists of time...

Lost in the mists of time…

Came across this image in my archive, and saw its potential in monochrome – don’t you just love that cloud, hovering….

  1. The B+W gives this a vintage feel. Could have been taken pre-war. Nice one, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I bet it looks pretty darn good in color as well, Sue.

  3. It’s absolutely perfect in monochrome 🙂

  4. that’s a fantastic composition, Sue, really love it, have a nice weekend, regards Mitza

  5. It’s as beautiful as it can be, Sue.

  6. It looks alive – looks like it’s going to pounce on the building below!

  7. Great image Sue, as someone else said , very vintage in monochrome – makes me think of Mr Ripley or Cary Grant doing some cat burglary!! (PS The cloud is the icing on the cake! 🙂 )

  8. Sepia might work too? It’s a lovely image.

  9. The cloud is perfectly placed – did you organise it? But what caught my eye was the foreground posts with their flections and the off-balance balance of the composition. And your comment that so many elements needed b&w was illuminating.

      Imagine being able to organise clouds…. 😀 apropos monochrome for this image, I felt colour was too distracting – the colours of the water, the posts, the rich hues of the buildings, the greenery..all calling for attention, too loud for appreciating the whole

  10. Such a beautiful composition Sue, so tranquil looking with the silvery effect.

  11. Love that hovering cloud!

  12. Perfect composition, enhanced by the monochrome treatment

  13. This reminds me of an old movie set. Great photo Sue, the monochrome effect is perfect 🙂

  14. Somewhere rather lovely in Lazio 🙂 🙂

  15. I do I do! Brilliant image!

  16. Sometimes we miss out on our good photos—and it pays off to good through old captures. This is an excellent photo, and I agree with you about the B&W qualities. It’s a lovely photo. I think the cloud adds depth and interest, though. 🙂

  17. Ah, lovely! I am looking through my pictures to put up a blog about Rome. Love Italy, all these tiny villages on the top of the rocky hills. Beautiful!

  18. The hovering cloud is nice – but those vertical sticks in the water really add a lot to the image, too -almost a dancing border to the picture? Nice one for sure!
