The entrance to the old rectory is largely composed of materials for reuse, memorial stones members, fragments of entablature, two lions carved a marble architrave adorned with garlands and used as a tympanum above the lintel, a travertine adorned with a triangular figure with wings and tail, perhaps a remnant of the archaic tomb. In the cloister of the rectory are reusing other ancient fragments of Roman, early medieval and Romanesque, much of it coming from the adjacent necropolis, in use until the early Christian period the pre-Roman age, which are found ample evidence in the adjoining land

this is such a charming composition with superb framing. beautiful view through the gateway with great use of the light. the two subjects one feline and the other human connect beautifully with each other.
thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

this is a charming image. I like the way the blueish shadowed d stone doorway framed the bright day beyond. The sleeping man and the pot of flowers are highlighted by the sun and the colour of perfectly placed cat's fur compliments the colours of the shade.

mi piace moltissimo questa scena, non consiste solo di una presentazione (sempre interessante) dell' architettura e dell' atmosfera creata fra le antiche pietre, ma questa volta include una piccola storia intrigante, un interesse speciale. Mi piace molto come hai inquadrato lo sfondo luminoso con la porta e l' ombra. Il gatto sembra osservare il signore penseroso, noi osserviamo tutti e due ed aspettiamo che qualcosa accada. Superba prospettiva ed ottima gestione della luce. Il senso di spazio, l' illumiazione equilibrata ed i dettagli precisi rendono la scena molto vivace. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona serata,

Ciao caro Silvio,
You have written an interesting note here - so often, even here in Britain, we see buildings which have been built from stonework taken from even older ones. Many of the old monasteries and churches in Britain were dismantled for other local buildings. I suppose it was a quick and cheap alternative to quarrying and cutting new blocks of stone.
A lovely picture in which you have, as always, managed the light exceedingly well. The foreground arch with its cat is clearly in shade and the distant view is brightly lit, yet we can still see full details in both parts of the image.
Excellent composition, perfect exposure and lovely light and colours - exceptional details and sharpness too.

archi e architetture sono la tua passione, ma questa volta ci sono delle presenze curiose e simpatiche.
Il gatto sembra guardare con invidia l'uomo appisolato, di solito è il contrario....
Bravo, bella e simpatica foto.

Bellissima scena di vita quotidiana con la presenza del gatto e del uomo nel questo bel angolo di villaggio. Un bel contrasto di luce anche. Complimenti!
Un caro saluto.

I like the way the entrance is creating a shadowed area splitting the lighted section. The presence of the person has an effect of scale. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the entrance. Have a nice day.

What a peaceful atmosphere, idyllic place to have a siesta, you have included this little cat, very nice element of the photo, great play of light and shadow

Intéressante composition associant ces vieilles pierres, le chat guettant à l'ombre et l'homme finissant sa nuit au soleil.

A little peaceful scene with a man sitting in the sun. The scene is well famed by the huge dark and interesting gate. A cat is included in the gate, looking out to the man. A very well composed picture with fine details.

A charming composition; beautifully lit and with superb textural detail. The man sat on the wall in the sunshine in contemplative mood makes an excellent focal point and is very well included. The cat sat watching him from the shadow of the doorway is the cherry on the cake.

J'aime beaucoup le lien qui s'établit malgré eux, entre le chat et l'homme qui soit dors, soit pense.J'aime le lien qui se fait aussi entre l'ombre et la lumière.
tatadalou (7459) 2014-05-20 21:11
Quest'uomo sembra aspettare che il tempo passi, osservato dal gatto. Bel contraste tra l'inquadratura all'ombra e la canonica al sole.

there are many good things about this picture. What strikes me first is the quality of the light management which makes one able to see all the details in all the parts of the picture. The other thing is excellent depth you achieved and good use of the door frame to create some foreground.
The cat in the corner has been placed in perfect place to add interest to the composition as well as the man having an afternoon nap on the wall.
Well done! Thanks for sharing

Those cats made for good sentry! I don't know if you saw the video of the cat attacking the dog who was biting a little boy, that was awesome. Good capture of this scene with good details. Well done, tfs.
willperrett (10609) 2014-05-21 11:20
The arch gives a natural frame to the photograph which leads our eyes through to the sunlit courtyard. But what makes the image work is the inclusion of the man, and in particular, the cat. Nice one.

Cordiali saluti dal sud della Spagna.

Nice the view through the adorned walls on the entrance, Silvio, and impressive use of the diff. light and shaded areas.
The cat is looking at the drowzy man, taken a good afternoon nap in the premises.
Made me smiling when saw this one...
adores (45243) 2014-06-22 17:16
I really like this, seems the cat is watching the man through the entrance. I like the pose of the man and the details at the top of the entrance. Very well framed and good light!
