Early morning in Malcesine

Out in the streets before the rest of the tourists wake up. Had a wish to kind of ‘have the town for myself’ in order to make some pictures in monochrome.

The narrow Streets. The houses. The shops. The corners and piazzas. It all invited to experiment with monochrome. So I got out of bed earlier than usual. Left the hotel with my mobile and took a stroll  in the heart of the town.

All pics processed in Snapseed.

Have a nice cup of coffee :o)
