This shot was taken inside the cathedral in Pisa. The temperature almost hit 40 Celsius that day, and so the main doors to the cathedral were open to let in the breeze, but a large cloth was hung in front of it to keep a sense of privacy and reverance, I believe, and maybe also to keep the birds out. Needless to say, the sun was in the right spot at that moment and provided the perfect backdrop for some silhouette photos. This group of tourists had just entered the building, and were taking it in like every other person who walked throught those little side doors.

    You are bringing back memories to me…I have been to all these places…great photos…

  • Well I hope they’re good memories, but there’s nothing like a trip down nostalgia lane. Glad to know they’re sparking something for you, even should it be just memories =)

    i am a massive fan of shadows and silhouttes, so loving this capture! great in black and white, and the way you’ve kept some intricate detail in constrast with the heavy shadows works really well. love the guy who’s scratching his head…adds something a little extra. great shot!

    =) Thanks Lena! once i walked in and saw the curtain up to keep the sun out and the air flow going, i just had to take a few shots. This is the the one that turned out the best, and im sooo happy it wasnt overly white washed or anything. I think the only think i love more than photos in black and white and black and white silhouettes =) thanks again for the comment and kind words!!
