Naples in black & white

Naples is the capital city of the Italian region Campania and the country’s third largest municipality, after Rome and Milan.

In 1995, the historic center of Naples was listed by Unesco as a World Heritage Site. The city is rich in culture, with stunningly beautiful churches and charming cobblestone streets.

Here are a few black & white photos I took while strolling the streets of this vibrant Mediterranean city.

  1. I appreciate the decision to show these in black and white, but in many ways it’s a shame. It is indeed a vibrant and beautiful city.
    Speaking of black and white, the snow is just arriving here in north eastern England.

    • Hi, yes, I understand what you mean: it is often a very tough decision whether to show pics in b&w or color!

      I guess b&w allows us to focus more on angles, lines, etc. – something we don’t often do when looking at pictures of urban life 🙂

  2. Gorgeous shots Miret! I only spent one night in Naples, and I was in the wrong end of town LOL! Must get back one day and see the nicer side of Napoli!
