The Skyscraper


My husband is looking at the Grattacielo, The Skyscraper, Verona's highest building. Some of you will smile but our Skyscraper is a mere 16 floors, 60 meters structure, built in the sixties.
The New Skyscraper's project is waiting to be approved: it'll reach the mighty height of 150 meters!

Wonderful shot. It's very artistic. You're lucky the skyscrapers in Verona are more human sized than in larger cities.

Very nice shot. You make me laugh because our skyscrapers in Bermuda are 6 stories high!

Perfect composition.

A fantastic black and white! It really reminds me of an exhibition of Italian photography of buildings that I just saw - take a look at www.estorickcollection.com/exhibitions

What a great portrait of him. Nice! And your photo makes the building look much more epic than 16 floors!

Yes, it's true. From your photo the "skyscraper" looks much higher. Congratulations. Your husband's profile look very handsome. LOL. Buon weekend. Ciao. A.

Ciao Valeria, molto bella l'inquadratura!... grazie per le gentili parole, ti rispondo brevemente: merito delle pellicole scadute che danno effetti particolari, e sempre diversi poi devi saper tu conoscere su quali colori danno il meglio di se e con quale luce! poi il resto è il mio occhio, altrimenti le macchine con le quali scatto sono tutte degli anni '70, e quando vedo i risultati penso" che macchine straordinarie"! a presto

I love the silhouette image of your husband in this photo. Was he a willing model?

I have to say, your photos are getting better and better each time I come here.

Superb photograph in every way!

Keep the Skyscraper 60 meters or less to let the sunshine comes in Verona.

wonderful shot.
awesome silhouette. Really love how you get a bit of sky in the arch, too. It would have been too much if it were all building.
