Thursday’s Special: Twilight


Today’s theme is pretty clear though the light in the image is dim. This twilight, half-obscure shot was taken one October above Florence.  These days too as we approach the winter solstice, the half-lit sky is the only sky I see coming home from work.

Black & White Sunday: Size


Are you impressed by size?

Size is a feature we are rarely indifferent to. We tend to ignore small people and things and gaze wide-eyed at the giants of this world.

Here is an example for you to muse on: Michelangelo’s David (in this case a replica) with unusually emphasized parts of his body and others that are disturbingly neglected.

There you have a theme that is fairly easy to interpret in a photograph. Show me what you’ve got in terms of sizes. You have time until next Saturday.





My blogger friends say that size matters. Here is what they came up with:

Intricate design of the Duomo

The largest brick dome ever constructed can be found on the famous Florence cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore and is a work of the 14th century Florentine architect Filippo Brunelleschi.



The intricate frescoes that ornate its interior were painted by Giorgio Vasari and Frederico Zuccari between 1572 and 1579.
