48 hours in Valletta, Malta
Lovely pictures, thanks for sharing. I especially like the 5th one, which I at first mistook for a drawing – I think it’s the texture of the buildings combined with all those buildings in more or less the same color. I love the way the red pops in the middle of all that beige.
Thanks yes I like the red emphasis amongst subdued colours – its trick used by painters such as Turner in this work http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artworks/turner-boat-and-red-buoy-in-a-choppy-sea-tw0807
Not to mention Nicolas Roeg’s interpretetation of Daphne du Maurier’s book “Don’t look now” featuring Donald Sutherland and a girl in a red mackintosh…
Hi Hugh, Yes good spot! I had to google it to remember – here’s a review of the film – and the red symbolism – that makes me want to see it again, think I was too young to get what was going on the first time I saw it http://www.theguardian.com/film/2011/jan/18/dont-look-now-red-coat
