    Interesting POV. I can't tell whether this is an above-ground, or below-ground, cell. Where is Isola di Capraia?

    Very rustic and rather frightening looking jail ! You shot it beautifully, Davide.....(:

  • Andrea Petersen

    Andrea Petersen gave props (17 Jun 2014):

    It looks like the jail is above ground...The linear tilted angle of how this is shot gives a very interesting perspective and it works well for this type of picture.

    Terrific take on this theme - and a very textured, colorful frame from a compelling view of what might otherwise be mundane. Love it.
