Siena Snapshots

Posted by Avital Pinnick on January 9, 2013

Siena, Italy

I call this bunch of photos “Siena snapshots” because they’re quick shots taken while walking from the bus station to the Campo and the cathedral. So I don’t have much background and can’t tell you what most of these buildings are. The building above is a small commercial building with an insurance company inside and a hairdressing salon in front. I liked the Romanesque windows.

Upper stories of a palazzo:

Madonna of the alley. I chose to convert it to B/W because it had a more mysterious feel and de-emphasized the trash on the ground.

I think I photographed this Romulus and Remus statue in the courtyard of Siena Cathedral.

Bags were quite expensive in Italy. Cheaper to photograph them. 🙂

    Your snapshots are often my favorite images! I haven’t quite figured it out yet but perhaps it is that you had no time to do anything but respond quickly and emotionally.

    I really am enjoying this group of images very, very much.
