MM 2-46: Monochrome Madness d’Orcia

This week I’ve submitted my Monochrome Madness photo a bit hastily, I admit. It made me wish I’d actually shoot in monochrome for a change. I’ll give it a go soon, promise.

Below is first a similar, just differently cropped colour image, followed by more photos taken that day. It was last year (see for yourself if my editing skills have improved), about this time, mom was visiting and she is about to again. The town of Pienza and Val d’Orcia valley are yet to greet me with a sunny disposition. I’m patient.

Today is the birthday of the author of the photographs below, taken when she was last on a visit around here. Maybe she will inspire herself and create a painting after her own photograph (because she is the Aunt Who Took Up Painting). And maybe she will pridi cai again and make new photos. And maybe she will even accept my fb request. 😀 Tanti auguri!

And this is how it looks now, our green wall, grazie ancora!
