Antichita' - Arezzo, Italy by Eric Strijbos

Arezzo, Italy / Italia

In my profile it says that I like Street photography – and I do, passionately, but I don’t know if much it will come to the ’bubble. This however seems to fit in.
Last time around in Tuscany, we had excellent sunny weather, but still I felt there was missing something. Until our final day in Arezzo. The heavens opened and when I got out in the rain, it had become an entirely different city.

I’m a travel writer and photographer from the Netherlands, having published more than a dozen of Dutch-language books about a range of European destinations, and a selfpublished photobook about Tuscany ( ). I use RedBubble to sell square travel photos and calendars.

    Brilliant black and white toning, and i love the composition; makes me giggle always too because they have the umbrellas up under a far bigger protection :)

  • Thanks! When I posted this elsewhere people saw all kinds of things in it, but this is good giggle too. :)

    I love Tuscany and I know it’s beautiful with all weathers…. Your image in b&w add a kind of “ancient” (like the store) to the setting… Beautiful shot, Eric! ;o)

  • Thanks! That’s one of the things that I like about black and white. :)
