Hi everyone, I'm delighted at how well my last upload - Church Window Reflections, was received by you. Glad so many liked it!
Today a Venice shot, honestly!! Inside the Doges Palace is a large courtyard at the back of which stands a magnificent staircase; the Scala dei Giganti, built by Sansovino in the mid 16th century. At the top of the staircase stand huge statues of Neptune and Mars.
Either side of the stairs are marble slabs with amazing patterns, yep, you've guessed it, this is one!! I've used levels and saturated a bit to bring the 'lion' out more, but I have NOT produced it myself. If you look carefully it's not a perfectly symmetrical piece.
Hope it appeals to some of you? A big cat mid week! V2 Mono for those who may prefer.
Thanks for looking
