It reminds me of Escher. Lovely.

Genoa: Via Garibaldi (Escheresque)

A lesson I learned once: Never trust the auto white balance of your camera when taking photos in stone buildings; the off-white of the walls will be taken as the white point.

Actually, timber buildings aren’t much better. You can’t trust that there’ll be good natural hues inside: best to carry at least a blank sheet of reasonably-white paper to do a manual white balance when doing architecture photography.

Two lovely shots.

@Collin is your comment prompted by the pinkness of the foreground ceiling?

“Prompted” yes, but it’s more “oh, he avoided that thing that bit me”. What happens is the off-white tint gets identified as a lighting problem and largely dialled out: if it wasn’t set manually, the white render or whatever in background probably set your camera right.

(on the other hand, my outdoor photos of miyajima all have a green tint ’cause I kept forgetting to reset the camera… let-the-camera-sort-it-out lets you concentrate on composition, which is the thimg that can’t be fixed in photoshop…)
