This is one of my favourite photos that I took while in Italy in 2006. I happened to notice this private villa while ambling around a neighbouring public one and I was taken right away by the wrought iron gate. Looking across and to the left I saw the house with vines covering its face. It just looked so nice and "Italian" so I took a quick shot before continuing on at the villa where I was "supposed" to be touring. When I returned home and uploaded my photos, I found this one and, in my mind, it took me right back to the exact spot. Originally, it was in colour, but I really like the mood it evokes in the black and white format. Hope you like it, too.
