Terrific capture, James!! Love those stairs, but glad I don't have to climb them with my junky knees!
Magnifique photo où l'on ressent la solitude de l'instant - un petit matin frais et silencieux entre ces boutiques closes et ces marches désertes que se partagent, sans le savoir, l'homme pressé et le pigeon à la recherche de quelque chose à becqueter...L'image renvoie le silence de cet instant de vie.
You wish... :-)
venice is a beautiful and romantic place..
Once again, very nice James. I like the new look!

Love this! I'll bet you took this shot very early in the morning—maybe before or after watching the vendors setting up in the Rialto Market?
Wow James... What can I say? I love it! Have a great weekend! ;-)
Great! It works.. :o)
James...This is a wonderful capture. I see the little bird on the steps for #2. This image really does lend i itself to the monochrome medium. Those are some wicked steps. Ols and Steep! genie
James, very clever to be out for a walk just after sunrise. Great stair pattern with bird and walker.
Love the sense of loneliness here! The man seems to be alone, but then there is the pigeon respectfully a space behind! Lovely!
Wonderful composition and subject matter.
Very nice, beautiful place ;))
Very dramatic and calm.
In France, when a place seems lonely we say : "Il n'y avait pas un chat" (There was no even a cat there). I guess now you've posted this pic, we could actualize the say : "Il n'y a qu'un pigeon" (There was only a pigeon) !!!
Lucky you :0) Lovely shot :0)
A fine and lonely photo. Those steps seem to go on forever. Is it actually a bridge with shops? Wonderful!
A most satisfying compostion here, James. I see from Alexa where and what it is, but that does not mind to me. I love the duality, the perspective, the feel.Bravo!
What a terrific scene...the lone pedestrian really makes this a moody shot. Love it!
I can't help but think that would be a killer climb to include in an early morning run. Then you could go back later and eat all the great food with much gusto. You have presented a beautiful and unique look and mood for what could be considered one of the most photographed places in the world. To me, it looks like the last scene of a movie. I almost expect to see the credits start rolling by...
As is so often the case, «Louis'» weekend work schedule means that he can't visit those who have contributed to Sunday Bridges until Monday. That being the case, he belatedly thanks you for participating!
Such a beautiful part of the world portrayed perfectly in your image James.
You are very talented, really wonderful!Leia
Beautiful in black and white!
I don´t recognice this place. On teh otehr hand, when I was there it was crowded with people. Nice shot.
