My first black and white Sunday for a while, and this week Paula’s chosen ‘after before’. She’d like to see the same photo, before and after it’s converted to monochrome. When flying out of Pisa last year, we made a brief stop at the Piazza dei Miracoli, to see the famous leaning tower.
I wasn’t expecting to see a fallen angel, but there on the grass broken and forlorn, lay the Angelo Caduto by Polish sculptor Igor Mitoraj.
Does he look better in colour?
I don’t think so, the people ignoring him as they walk on by are distracting. Apparently Pisa is a temporary home, he may have flown on by now.

Definitely prefer him in monochrome 😊
I’m pretty sure he wasn’t there in February, Gilly. Nice ‘find’ 🙂 🙂 Happy Easter darlin! Lazy day today or seeing family? We’re off to Leeds in a while.
Going to brave the chill sweetheart, hopefully the sun will be out by lunchtime. Enjoy Leeds, seeing friends? 🙂
Just James and Co. 🙂
Oh goodie that means chocolate and fun x:-)x
I like the b & w version best. As you say, less distraction. And more appropriately surreal. A great find all round.
Mono for me too, Gilly! Happy Easter, hope you have something good planned
Mono definitely, that orange wall is quite distracting
Love them both and that is an incredible sculpture – with a very cleverly placed wing-tip 🙂
nice to read your posts again, now traveling through Italy!
He was there in 2014 too 🙂 I love how your monochrome turned out. Thank you, Gilly 🙂
No he is very handsome in b&w! 🙂
I like them both Gilly but knowing what the title of the sculpture is, I think the b+w version is more poignant. 🙂
