Pisa is much more than a tower. The streets of this city are a port where many cultures berth. I found Pisa apparently abandoned by the council cleaning services. It looked like attacked by riots of disrespectful tourists or teenage citizens. Nevertheless, I prefer, for photographing a city, walls that have more to communicate than a plain just-painted one.
After only a few hours in Pisa, I am wishing to go back and to take as many photos as possible of the serious part of the city. Because the Square of Miracles resulted like a joke; a leaning tower, tourists in impossible poses...; at least, I had a good laugh!

Wow. This is means so much more than that damn tower!
Congratulations, Alicia, and a big welcome to TE. I hope you're not put off by the postcard-wannabees & will post many more of this kind of quality shots. I'm looking forward.

Hi Alicia, welcome to TE.
This is really something different as that famous leaning tower. Very nice streetphoto and I am looking forward for more of these kind of pictures from you.

Welcome to TE with a rather different kind of photo from what we usually find here. I like this excerpt from a reality that is so far from the tourist track, even though the actual distance may be short. I also like how you handled the light and how you cropped this.

Ciao Alicia.Firstly welcome to TE with this image reflecting an independently minded approach to travel photography. Secondly, I love the harmonious palette, the shreds of "voices" from 2011, 2013 etc and of course the light illuminating the scene. Best wishes. Klaudio.

sono di Pisa e la penso più o meno come te.
In effetti ci sono molte cose da correggere, come la pulizia e l'accoglienza.
Ma Pisa non è solo la Torre e la sua storia è tracciata in tutto il centro storico.
La foto che presenti è molto bella, l'atmosfera è originale e l'idea è molto buona.
