Black and White Five Day Challenge – Day 5


For my final photo we are off to Venice and I’ve got a photo for you that I don’t think I have used before.  This is the view from the Basilica di San Marco looking over the Piazza San Marco towards the Grand Canal.  The building on the left is the Doge’s Palace and on the right is the National Library of St Mark’s.  Atop the granite column nearest to the Palace is the Lion of Venice – a bronze, winged lion which is a symbol of Saint Mark the Evangelist, one of the patron saints of Venice.  Saint Theodore, Venice’s first patron saint, is at the top of the column by the Library holding a spear and standing on a creature that looks like a cross between a dragon and a crocodile.Piazza San Marco VeniceJo at RestlessJo nominated to take part in this challenge and there are only two rules to stick to :

1. On five consecutive days create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W

2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.

I’m afraid I am going to break rule two, as I have done a similar thing so recently, but please feel free to join in if you fancy it.

So that is the challenge over and I hope you have enjoyed the black and white-ness that I have shared with you.  I think black and white photos often have a lot more drama about them and nostalgia of course,  especially if people are involved and it is a ‘real’ black and white print like the one I used for Day 1.
