decaying arched window

I took this shot in the medieval town of Randazzo, which sits on the northern foot of Mount Etna in Sicily. We went there to visit the famous Basilica di Santa Maria, a 13th-century church with a façade completely built of black lava stone, but I found many of the old and decaying buildings in area around the church to be just as interesting and photogenic.


  1. Love the framing. It’s always tempting for me to square up with something like this, but I think the partial framing can work well, if not better, as done above. That’s one window nobody will be breaking into the building with.
