Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #70: Monochrome

Venice is a beautiful city, full of architectural details.  These are the windows in the Bridge of Sighs; it was through these shaped openings that convicts saw their last view of Venice before they were imprisoned.

The stairs are known as the Giants’ Staircase in the Doge’s Palace.  The staircase itself is not overly large, but there are some giant-size statues atop it.  Looking closely, you find these intricate designs on the stairs.

I didn’t edit the colors on either of these, so enjoy them in their natural black and white.

You can find more monochrome at the original Lens-Artist challenge.

    Thanks for these beautiful details, Mei-Mei. I was in Venice this summer, but I didn’t take a shot of the details. Thanks for showing them to me!

    Beautiful choices, Mei-Mei. Intricate details are sometimes overlooked – too many tourists and also heat, can make me miss out on them. Thank you for showing us!

    For some reason, I find the pictures of small beauty even more beautiful than large beauty. These pictures are so beautiful!
