The portico of the back facade of Carignano Palace, Turin.

Carignano Palace was built by architect Guarino Guarini between 1678 and 1684, on commission by Emanuele Filiberto Savoia, prince of Carignano.
It is known as one of the most important examples of Italian baroque architecture, due to its undulating main facade and wavy brickwork.

The portico forms the west side of Carlo Alberto Square, whose east side is delimited by the National Library, the main public library of the city. For an overall view of the back facade of Carignano Palace, please see White wall, red fog.

This image is a DRI postprocessing (two exposures from a single hand held raw shot).

Full view recommended. Thanks for viewing.

Fourteenth image in my "Turin" series. Please see the complete series.

Where did I take the picture from? ;) www.google.it/maps/@45.0697125…

net shot steph!!
we talked long ago about fibonnacci!! count the number or arches, the number of details etc... fibonnaci everywhere...

do you try many shots or just took this one?
i imagine a shot from the ground, with a more dramatic perspective!!

cheers bro!

fibonacci... well starting from the very first arch as 1, then 1 again, then counting 2, then 3 then 5 you get to the very last arch. :D
it's the only took i took for this image. sometimes i happen to take multiple shots and the choose the best one.
the idea of a more dramatic perspective is good, i will try next time :)

Great architecture photo :)
And i like the fact that you do a bit of history to describe the Carignano Palace.
Nice!

This looks like music turned into a physical stage. Lovely curves, arches & overall geometry.

thank you gloria, also for the :+fav:
and thank you mainly for suggesting a wonderful interpretation of the shapes in the image. i did not notice it before; i noticed that the smooth, pastel-like colors may suggest a painting somehow, but did not think about music. :)
