Passageway


Today is the first of the month and the theme day in CityDailyPhoto Community is: Passageway. Well this is a passageway from Royal Palace to the Cathedral of Torino. Honestly I took this photo three years ago but I never stop to love it --- Also check what the other City Daily Photo bloggers have come up with for today's theme day.

Come ogni primo giorno del mese la Comunità CityDailyPhoto stabilisce il tema del mese. Quello di questo mese è: Passaggio. Questo è il passaggio che da Palazzo Reale porta al Duomo di Torino. Scattai questa foto tre anni fa ma non ha mai smesso di piacermi --- Date uno sguardo anche a ciò che hanno pubblicato gli altri City Daily Photo bloggers

That hallway is so stark and pristine. The curvy lines of the lights are a great contrast to the straight tiles. Gorgeous photo.

Hilda said...

I can understand why you love this. It's so elegant and beautiful, in a very graphic way.

Virginia said...

OH my Fabrizio, I will never stop loving this either. The love white and the elegant touches of black and the perspective are excellent!!!!

Fabrizio, I am so impressed with your perfect alignment of those lamps with the window beyond, and the perfect symmetry you've captured in this gorgeous, gorgeous passageway. Having the person in motion in the shot makes it absolutely perfect. Big compliments on your beautiful theme photo!

Great photo and wonderful choice. If it were not such a regal place, would imaging that this scene could be used for an advertisement for a cleaning product.

Gunn said...

It is simple, and soooooo elegant!
Beautiful architecture, colors, light and lamp.
I also think the person ad something extra to your photograph.

Kate said...

Elegant is the perfect word to use to describe this perfect photo. Technically wonderful and aesthetically remarkable.

Jilly said...

You are spoiled for choice in Turin. This is stunningly beautiful. The shot is wonderful and absolutely 'made' by the person with the dog. Love it! A symphony in white and black.

what a beautiful, beautiful photo

Linda said...

Simple and beautiful, and the pensive figure lends an air of mystery.

Leif Hagen said...

A wonderfully bright, light, elegant passageway for today's theme day! Bravo Fabrizio!

Julie said...

I like this very much, Fabrizio. Indeed, you have the lamp aligned perfectly with the centre of the far doorway, but you make it more complex by allowing the man to amble down the left hand side. I do love his hands behind his back. The palette is very beautiful. Black and white (not mono in this case) is so elegant!

Ah ! You confused me ! So many appreciation about an old photo... I'm joking. So, my friends: *thank you so much* You made my day !!!!

Ciao Fabrizio, rieccomi per recuperare una manciata di scatti e comincio da questo che, mi sembra, non ha colpito solo me ;)

Non solo la foto è bella per la luce e gli allineamenti che hai sottolineato nell'inquadratura, ma non appena l'ho vista ho pensato a un 'passaggio nell'aldilà'.

Io non credo alla vita dopo la morte, ma questa foto rappresenta benissimo l'idea di un passaggio a uno stadio successivo, grazie anche alla figura di uomo che cammina con le mani dietro la schiena. Complimenti!

p.s. nella distrazione, che a volte, mi possiede ;) non avevo capito che facevi parte di una community di City Daily Photo Bloggers... una splendida iniziativa! Spero di potermi aggregare presto, visto che coltivo il sogno di mettere on line le tante foto fatte con l'analogica e di riprendere a farne di serie con la digitale :)
