Black & White Sunday: Traces of the Past Y3 08

I can never remember what I have posted for Traces of the Past, which usually involves trawling through the archives….so here’s hoping this one hasn’t been seen before!  ~Actually, I know it hasn’t, because I have just had to do the monochrome conversion. The colour version of this image is one of my images on display during this month’s exhibition by my Photo club at the Barbican library in London.

This is at an abandoned village in Basilicata, Italy:

  1. I so enjoy being taken on virtual tours through past voyages with you Sue. This is a great black and white rendition taken from an excellent vantage point. Congratulations on the exhibition 🙂

  2. Looks great in B&W, Sue, and I’m sure it does in color as well. Having blogged for so many years, I can’t remember all the photos I’ve posted, whether just on the blog or for challenges. I have folders on my laptop for the shots I used in various challenges, but going through them all is time-consuming and I always think that even if I did re-post something I’d previously used in a challenge, chances are most/all the readers wouldn’t remember, either. But there might be that one…


  3. Well done on getting a photo into the exhibition, Sue. This is a great shot, and another good example of your ‘speciality’.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. A very dramatic scene, Sue. Some spine shivery sensations too – excellent

  5. Where is it Sue? Well done on the exhibition, can we see the colour version somewhere on your site?

  6. There is always something inherently sad about abandoned places. But they do make for excellent photo opportunities. Like your photo shows. Congratulations with getting your photo exhibited at the Barbican library.

  7. Great conversion job, Sue. It almost looks like a drawing. 🙂 🙂

  8. Are the images for sale? This really is the epitome of ruin.

  9. Excellent, Sue! Congratulations with getting your photo exhibited at the Barbican library.

  10. The viewpoint adds to the utter desolation in this shot, Sue. Congratulations on the exhibition.

Over to you...
