Photos of walls as backdrops

Wandering through Tuscan villages is beautiful in itself and doubly beautiful for a photographer. The eyes may wander far away and meet villas, mansions, fields, nature, sunsets… but beauty can be found in close-ups as well and insignificant walls – old, stained, faded, weathered – can become an awesome background for text, illustrations, or even photos. I shot the following ones within a few miles from home (in Calci, Pisa), and I find them wonderfully diverse.

The latter image, in particular, I used it to replace the grey background in the following portrait.
