Malcesine (Lake Garda, Italy) by Lenka

Malcesine (Lake Garda, Italy) by 


Late afternoon, smell of Italian herbs, garlic and tasty pizza, everything so peaceful and tranquil, you only hear the waves at the lake and quick steps in the narrow street…

An evening in Malcesine, a lovely village at the shore of Lago di Garda (Garda Lake), Italy.
Taken already in August 2001, the photograph I originally got from the lab was all but perfect and quite disappointing: white sky, black foreground, no details, simply too much contrast. But I couldn’t forget the lovely scene… When I got a film scanner in 2007 (finally!), this was one of the first film frames I have scanned. And there was really much more on the negative!

Enjoy the atmosphere :)

    nicely framed and leading the eye in- there is something really pleasing about this – maybe all the pastel colours beyond…. really nice
