Silent River Obsidian Sky

The 240-kilometer River Arno begins its journey from the Apennine Mountains and winds through major Italian cities like Arezzo, Florence and Pisa before meeting the Mediterranean Sea. Going to Pisa after after Florence, I am struck by how different the banks along River Arno are. Unlike bustling Florence, Pisa is quiet and quaint, and the tempo only really kicks up at Piazza dei Miracoli, where the Leaning Tower is situated. Because the colors of the buildings were not very vibrant, black and white worked better in this shot, and a filter helped to give the image a more haunting mood.
