Looking for meanings in words, images and sounds
Già sembra lontano che sono stata a Bologna….
This is my entry for today’s #photo101 project.
How tall is it? Do you know?
97 meters – does not seem like much, but I assure you it is impressive 🙂
97 meters is impressive enough for me. Thinking about the times that it was built it’s actually very impressive.
Yes, very 🙂 and it is even more impressive that the guy at the hotel rented me a suite with this view for the price of a standard room 😀
It’s always nice to get upgrades like that when you’re travelling.
Yes, Italians do things with a style (unlike some other nations I visited this Summer, but I will hold my breath).
I love your daily presence in my blogosphere! And I devour bricks, my favourite building material. In this photo, strong vertical lines and empty space mark you as a daring photographer with a wonderful eye.
It also marks me as a guest who knows how to convince a reception guy to give her the hotel’s loveliest suite 😀
Do you give lessons? Although charm is unteachable I suspect
😆 Sure I can give lessons on how never to be given a “no” answer 😀
Allora complimenti anche per tua diplomazia…
La tua foto e’ eccezionale!!
🙂 Buongiorno Anna, grazie per i complimenti. Can you tell how happy I was when I was clicking this? If you can’t, I’ll tell you – very happy 🙂

Pas évident de trouver un angle de vue pertinent sur ce genre de photo. Là tu as su la borner sur la gauche avec ce superbe mur en briques et par le dessous avec les 2 cheminées!
C’est ce que j’appelle un angle originale qui permet à cette photo de ne pas ressembler aux millions d’autres prises par tous les touristes!
Encore une fois, belle maîtrise du sujet et belle réalisation!
Tu m’as fait rougir, mais aussi soyons honetes – tres, tres heureuse 🙂
Le plus ce n’est pas forcément de faire de belles photos, ça, tout le monde peut le faire. Non pour moi le plus dur c’est de trouver de bons angles, faire quelque chose de différent. Et là ta prise est différente 🙂
J’adore tes compliments 🙂
😀 Do you know this tower?
No but I really liked the theme music and your blog creative. 😀
Cool shot. I assume this was an observation or defensive tower in days gone by. I’d want to go inside and go up to the top. A nice hotel view, you did well to get it. 🙂
It was a matter of prestige to have its own tower back in the old days… Yes, I did 😛 (me smug)
beautiful !! 🙂
A very original take on a much-photographed landmark – well done!
Has it been photographed much? 😉 Alessandro, no sai cuanto sono grata pela tua attenzione e complimenti. (excuse my bad Italian) Bacissimi 😉
Quite a tall tower for that time.
Amazing Paula. And so is the tower! 😉 Another plus for me is that I really like old brick buildings! 😆
Keep looking at things differently. And what lovely music.
A really beautiful piece of architecture, Paula. Interesting to know that there’s an “Italian Medieval “Manhattan”. Lovely theme music to accompany your photo. 🙂
Oops, my comment https://bopaula.wordpress.com/2014/11/10/photography-connect/#comment-22699 was for this post. While at that post the photo is very beautiful too. 😉
Lovely, Paula. I do like to see an untypical view. And even better when it’s somewhere I haven’t been – yet 🙂
But you will be, and you can stop at Venice too on your way 😉 Thanks, Debbie 🙂
That is an impressive structure – and I LOVE the fogginess of the shot – gives the perfect ambiance!
We have not been here Paula so delighted to see this most creative shot. I enjoyed reading through the comments. perhaps you could do a post on how to always get the reception staff to give your requests. 🙂
😀 thanks Sue. I am a persuasive person
bel effet, c’est impressionnant
Beautifully shot all slightly hazed. It looks foreboding, imposing and formidable; makes me think of the keep in the story about The Man in the Iron Mask.
Ah, the Torre degli Asinelli! A wonderful perspective Paula. From Your window I presume? Did you climb up to the top? I didn’t have time to do that sadly.
No, we didn’t, but we didn’t plan on it either. We were there very shortly though we spent the night. We came in the evening, left the hotel in the morning and had some 2 hours of sightseeing.
