First of february in Perugia, Umbria, central Italy...0 degrees Celsius... :-P
Perugia is a medieval city constructed on hills with amazing architecture. On the bottom of this picture you can see an aqueduct which dates from the year 1254. It is now used as a walk way.
In the background on the right you can see a piece of the famous "Università per stranieri" building (university for foreigners. A university proposing very good italian courses for foreigners.

I don't think you can do anyway better than this PoV. It's at its best. It's a great pleasure to follow your camera, Leonie!

hi Leonie, very nice framing, excellent choice of angle and composition. the cityscape is fabulous and the colors is very nice.

Le cadre naturel formé par le pont en-haut donne une dimension supplémentaire intéressante à l'image.
Juste dommage que le personnage à droite ait les jambes coupées; un léger décalage du cadrage vers le bas aurait permis d'éviter cet inconvénient, surtout qu'il restait pas mal de place en-haut.
J'aime bien l'aspect "patchwork" et coloré de cette photo.

Nice photo of this pretty town!

Très joli point de vue sur l'aqueduc et les rues et maisons. Avant de lire ta note, je me demandais ce que pouvait bien être l'aqueduc.
Très belle composition sous la voute (de quoi au fait ?) avec les belles couleurs des maisons... et de l'arc en ciel ;)
Bravo Léonie et merci pour le partage.

Hi Leonie, very nice colorful photo, i like such a small city with old town, i think every small town has got somekind of sorrow ;O)

A great perspective and composition under the arches Leonie!
A picture which is filled with lots of interesting details!
I like the wide range of pastel-colors in this one very much!

Beautiful place and very beautifully "framed" by natural way by that arch. Very good point of view. Nice colors, bright, attractive view. Very good shot, Leonie.

Very good frame with gate.
Interesting lines follow to left corner.

For five months I lived down the aqueduct stairs and around the corner from this view but unfortunately the steps were under construction at the time. It's wonderful to see it as it is now-- and to see that some things, like the flag on the right, haven't changed. Wonderful photo!

Wie viele andere gesagt haben, mir gefällt besonders der Rahmen. Er ist wie ein Tor, das sich öffnet und lädt uns ein, diese Straßen zu wandern und mehr Schönheit zu entdecken, die von hier so versprochen erscheint.

So many interesting details in this photo, Leonie! I like the way the arch hides the sky, making us concentrate on the buildings. The snow on the roofs gives a nice and unusual touch as well. Great job!

Bonne utilisation de cette voute pour donner un plus à ton cadrage. Belle perspective colorée. Bien vu Léonie.
naret (826) 2005-02-09 6:53
Beatiful one. I like the use of arc to frame the main subject. The color of the building is also beatiful.
Thank you for sharing.

Oh, some catching up to do here. Very nicely framed urban shot, with your good camera. The whisp of smoke from the chimney, and the clothing of the walker set this at winter time, though a pity you cut her legs. Nice place for a short break, so that's where you where.
Steft (5975) 2005-02-10 17:07
It does remind me of this picture.
You have choosen a very nice point of view. Good depth, it was not very sunny, but good colours.
The only thing that that I would do different was cropping less, so that we could see whole the legs of the women on the foreground, or just wait till was gone.
Anyway: splendid pic!

Superbe Léonie, merveilleuse composition avec cette voute qui encadre cette rue descendente, superbe. Amitié/jr

Hi Leonie, I like this very pleasent scene into the colorful street. You took great advantage from the arch.
joseelias (369) 2005-02-22 8:28
Nice view of this city. I like the framing made by the arch which makes us focus in the city and also contrasts the darkness with the colorful buildings. This looks very much like some of the old quarters of Lisbon.

Très belle prise de vue, tout y est, jusqu'au drapeau "PACE".
capthaddock (28790) 2005-03-09 9:48
It's very interesting to see a dusting of snow in this region. I'll never forget the chocolate. The peace flag is also interesting. In San Francisco there are many rainbow flags similar to this which represent, hmm, something other.

Come sta ? You took me 21 years ago. I remembered that there was one of my classes and I watched to Perugia many times from the terrace. Many thanks for sharing. Ciao.

l'inquadratura che hai scelto per questa immagine è davvero ben scelta e lascia intavvedere l'anima medievale della bella Perugia.
Complimenti e... buon anno!
