Shadows in Florence
Posted by Avital Pinnick on June 15, 2012
This shot was taken from the top of Giotto campanile in Florence. We climbed all 414 steps to the highest level. The railing is quite high, so I held the camera over the railing to take shots of people on the ground. It was late afternoon and I was struck by how the shadows show much more detail than the actual people themselves. You can see a guy taking a photo, a dog walking with its owner, a couple people with shopping bags. It reminded me of the famous National Geographic photo of camel shadows.
