Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV

Old Town, Geneva

The difference in architectural style between French and German speaking Switzerland is vast, and there’s no better example of the former than the Old Town of Geneva. Clearly influenced by the French, the old buildings look particularly stunning with the sunlight illuminating the lovely warm colours of the stone. My shot for this week’s challenge was taken through one of the old gates to the town. At least I think it must have been a gate at some point, I’m not quite sure!

Despite the beautiful colour of the stone, I was caught between the colour and black and white on this shot. So here is the other for comparison. Which is your favourite?

Black and White

      Thanks for your opinion! Much appreciated πŸ™‚ I do generally prefer shots in colour, but I like the dark and light contrast in the B&W too.

      I think it’s really interesting to see the same shot in colour and black and white. I’m going to try and do that more often. Thanks for stopping by!

      Thanks! I’m glad you noticed, I’m always looking for shots with some kind of symmetry or pleasing geometry. Also thank you for following, it’s much appreciated!

      Thanks bluebee! I think the color shot has definitely proved more popular. Good point on the texture, I hadn’t really thought about that! Thanks for stopping by.
