Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 58

A lovely set of streets!

Welcome to the 58th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

You took to the streets and provided a great deal of wonderful insight!  I really appreciate the great posts that you provided and particularly enjoyed your creative way to approach some of the subtleties that make for great photographs of streets and street photography.

Thank you for all those wonderful posts and providing me with some inspiring posts to read!

Now that I’m back (and spent a good part of the day off-loading my images and organizing them), I took a quick stab at this view of one of the streets in Volterra…

Streets of Volterra

Volterra is a town that should be on everyone’s must visit list in Tuscany; it has a true charm and great variety of sites to visit all well within walking distance.  From Etruscan to Roman and Renaissance, there is wonderful representation within Volterra.

Upper Level – Lower Level

No way up?

Sometimes, as one walk around with a camera in hand, interesting items just pop up and scream at you to be photographed.  Enjoying those suprise moment, I captured the following image walking around Fenway Park in Boston during a scavenger hunt.

Upstairs, Downstairs…

When I saw these two doors next to each other, it immediately felt like an example of class distinction (do you remember the show ‘Upstairs, Downstairs‘?).  What made this even more poignant is the fact that only the lower level has a door handle.  One can always enter the lower level, but the upper level is by invitation only, as someone has to open the door from the inside to let you in…

Technical Details

My trusty Canon EOS 5D Mk III with my walking around EF 24-105mm f/4L lens attached.  Exposure settings were 1/125 second at f/5.6 and 400 ISO.
