bookshop under the porch by fabio piretti

historic bookshop of Bologna (Italy), placed in full center of town has provided used books for generations of Bologna’s people.
in this black and white, it remerber me a bit of paris and of street bookshops, in a little contrast with the graffiti on the left.

    Great shot and an original subject – well done in this over ‘captured’ world.

  • thanks for feature and fav.
    I made a little search in RB for Bologna’s shot and I find that this bit of porch has been shoted more than the two towers (the traditional simbol of town) and in very similar ways.
    In effect I think that this kind of vision is the more rapresentative of my town with the shadow and perspective of porch.

    Looks to be a fine place to walk and browse, wonderful image…nice pov…b&w suits it so well! =)

  • thanks!
    yes, it’s a fine place to walk in, like many part of center town when you lost noise and traffic and you can take a quick look to a book, then at the cover of another and maybe smell the old paper of other old books…

    I like how you create a one point perspective!

  • it’s simply in my town; you find an infinity perspective each time you walk under a porch (and we have kilometers of them!)
