Caruggi are narrow, dark alleys typical of Genoa and towns on the Ligurian Sea.

    Very nice series. I particularly like the fist one looking down the tunnel. It seems to have a lot of depth.

      Thank you! I included that tunnel picture in this alley series to stress the lack of depth of “caruggi”, which rarely show their end to the pedestrian.

    As always, very nice pictures! These images would be great candidates for one object to be coloured. Say a sun color yellow! I bet it would enhance the entire picture. Of course as an armchair photographer, what do I know. The picture with the motorcycles at the top is my favorite! Thanks for sharing your work; keep them coming.

      Thank you Jim! Yes, most of whites here are yellow/ochre shades… how can you perceive colors in b/w pictures 🙂 ? This “single color” or “selected palette” I applied to the coming soon “Portofino’s palette” picture series… I am curious to see what you will think about it!

        Not sure, but thought yellow would fit well. I am looking forward to your new picture series!
