Photography 101: Landmark

Not a typical view, and hardly a view that anybody outside the town would recognize; I give you the tallest tower of the Italian Medieval “Manhattan”.

  1. I love your daily presence in my blogosphere! And I devour bricks, my favourite building material. In this photo, strong vertical lines and empty space mark you as a daring photographer with a wonderful eye.


    • 🙂 Buongiorno Anna, grazie per i complimenti. Can you tell how happy I was when I was clicking this? If you can’t, I’ll tell you – very happy 🙂

  2. Pas évident de trouver un angle de vue pertinent sur ce genre de photo. Là tu as su la borner sur la gauche avec ce superbe mur en briques et par le dessous avec les 2 cheminées!
    C’est ce que j’appelle un angle originale qui permet à cette photo de ne pas ressembler aux millions d’autres prises par tous les touristes!
    Encore une fois, belle maîtrise du sujet et belle réalisation!


  3. Cool shot. I assume this was an observation or defensive tower in days gone by. I’d want to go inside and go up to the top. A nice hotel view, you did well to get it. 🙂


    • Has it been photographed much? 😉 Alessandro, no sai cuanto sono grata pela tua attenzione e complimenti. (excuse my bad Italian) Bacissimi 😉


  4. A really beautiful piece of architecture, Paula. Interesting to know that there’s an “Italian Medieval “Manhattan”. Lovely theme music to accompany your photo. 🙂


  5. We have not been here Paula so delighted to see this most creative shot. I enjoyed reading through the comments. perhaps you could do a post on how to always get the reception staff to give your requests. 🙂


  6. Beautifully shot all slightly hazed. It looks foreboding, imposing and formidable; makes me think of the keep in the story about The Man in the Iron Mask.


  7. Ah, the Torre degli Asinelli! A wonderful perspective Paula. From Your window I presume? Did you climb up to the top? I didn’t have time to do that sadly.


    • No, we didn’t, but we didn’t plan on it either. We were there very shortly though we spent the night. We came in the evening, left the hotel in the morning and had some 2 hours of sightseeing.
