Castello di Bagnolo (3)

I walked through the woods in the morning to buy fresh bread and eggs and happened to walk past the old mill in the bottom of the valley where the wheel was turning.   I started photographing the amazing roof beams, which I would have thought were medieval, but may only be eighteenth century.   The mill was apparently used for woodworking up until the 1960s (you can see the multiple scraps surviving on the floor) and has now been transformed into an artist’s studio (as you will see, I am temporarily obsessed by black-and-white):-

    Very glad to see more pics in b&w – in my opinion there is not a substitute for the various tonal qualities that become apparent, case in point: the pic of the beams almost looks like a drawing.

    I completely agree with the opinions of Mark and others about black and white photographs: they are stunningly beautiful. I use Kodak or Ilford B&W films for my Leicas. I should add that I do like your colour photos too. So some mixture, once your Samsung’s’s function comes back, will be nice.
