Italy, Naples

Apartment Block in Naples, Italy
Apartment Block, Naples - Italy
Naples is usually just a transit point for many tourists who base themselves in the city while they visit nearby attractions such as Mt Vesuvius, Pompeii, Herculaneum, Capri, Sorrento & the Amalfi Coast. What a shame, as Naples is a wonderful city that is blessed with many attractions and culinary delights. We have been to Naples many times and still have not seen a fraction of what it has to offer. 

This image of an apartment complex was taken in the historical centre of Naples. There is a courtyard at the bottom of the image but we didn't include this in the shot as it was fairly cluttered and we wanted to place the emphasis on the grungy architecture and the wonderfully patterned ceilings on each of the levels.

This image has also been tonemapped using
Photomatix Pro software which is great for bringing out the texture in the walls. Do yourself a favour and visit Naples for a few days and meander all the alleyways in the historical centre and you will find there is an amazing amount of photographic opportunities that await you.
