Award Shortlist   


By Vambomarbleye
Firstly a big thanks to all who commented and voted on "Classic Shorts, Made in Italy", I hope you all found them as amusing as I did.
Trying to find something original in a city as much photographed as Venice proved to be a real challenge. I think that unless one is lucky enough to have extremely atmospheric light then all the classic, iconic locations have been done to death.
So, after giving up on the famed locations, I headed for the back streets and alleyways looking for something different.
I couldn't resist this Nun, emerging into the light, pulling her shopping trolley behind her.

A good find and a million miles away from a standard touristy shot. Good stuff.

And, I would suggest, far more interesting. Really nicely composed and an ideal subject for b&w.

Following a tip from Moira (mrswoolybill), we concentrated a Paris visit on wandering round the narrow back streets of the 3rd and 4th arrondissements. Best photography I ever had form that city.

Thanks Moira, I did contemplate shouting at her to get her attention, to get her to look toward me. I'm so glad that I didn't.
