  • ummmm – i love the limited color palette of this one. i wonder if you were inspired by all the recent volcanic ash images to post this. either way it’s a delightful image.

  • the overcast weather helped in “shading” the various buildings giving it a layered look.. nice shot.. :)

  • the true greyscale of the city: very melancholic, but inside is the beauty!
