Black & White Sunday: Towering

Black & White Sunday challenge this week has towering as a theme. Towering can be a building, a person, a mountain, or a tree.. maybe you can finish the list? Show me your black and white examples of towering. Today I have three and they all include towers. When you make a post, link it to this challenge and leave me your links in the comment section bellow.

Being able to enjoy sunny Tuscany if only for a few days is a bliss.

The most distinctive building in modern London is Shard, at least to my eyes

In medieval times Bologna’s skyline was crowded with high towers, very much like Manhattan today. This is what is left of them…ย

This week a devastating earthquake hit the central Italy and killed about 300 people and children by erasing half of the town of Amatrice and damaging badly nearby municipalities at about 100 miles from Rome.

There isn’t anything I can do in face of this tragedy, but to say a silent prayer for all the victims.ย

  2. A touchingly towering post, Paula, reminding us in images, words and music, that it is our humanity – the capacity to make, create and share with others – however we choose to express this – is what truly matters.

  3. Such beautiful towers- the tower is Tuscany is exceptional. The earthquake in Italy saddens me-so much loss in the span of minutes. I like your musical choice- interesting how the music changes half way through- begins as a flowy melody and then changes its tone, only to return to the melody once again. Like life.

    • Thank you kindly. Lisa. I chose the music for the reason you mentioned, but also cause Giovanni Allevi comes from the earthquake struck region. I appreciate your insightful comment a lot.
