Rainy day in Milan
This is my first black and white experiment and there is a story told in it … well, several different stories in a single rainy day. I left 2 shots in color: the reason is apparent, to me at least.
I decided to allow myself to work on contrast and luminosity: the topic deserves BW, or at least I proved myself unable to render the atmosphere in color.
I think that -by slightly changing the two mentioned factors- I could only add to the feelings that I felt when shooting, rather than subtracting authenticity: I’m open to criticisms … while our Government is deaf to the cries of the real world!
The title of this shot is unfair to the Prime Minister’s brother-in-law: he was the Mayor of Milano at that time, and one of the way-too-many-jointly-liables for today’s nice situation.
