ABC Wednesday: T is for Tuscania

It was the third day of our tour at Tuscany.  We went straight to the town of Tuscania.  It is a very old town with history going back to the Etruscan period.  We went straight to the city square and was instructed to photograph the fountain.

It was really hard, the surrounding was very crowded with buildings, restaurants, small shops, people and cars.  We got a really good lesson on how to do composition and how to eliminate the unnecessary.

We then went up to the rampart, which has a very good view to the surrounding countryside.  Can you see the wire at the left hand side of the picture?  It is actually strings of an experimental musical instrument.

Here is a beautiful medieval building across the town that we can see from the rampart.

Here is a beautiful archway in the old town.  It is a very beautiful city to walk around.

We have shown this picture not too long ago in one of the ABC Wednesday posting.

The day was very beautiful.  We only stay at Tuscania till noon before heading out to Marta on the shore of Largo di Bolsena for more photography, but that is for another blog.

I can see that this is a city that is a heaven for an amateur photographer I wish I could have been there.

OK, I want to go there too! Wow. B beautiful!
My favorite image is the one of the arch. Really beautiful composition, nice 'layers' and the palette of colors are very grounding.
