Day 4 of B&W 5 Day challenge: Get me to the church on time

I have a much happier photo for my 4th day of the ‘5 Day B&W Photo Challenge’. Still in Italy, and on our first morning in Florence, we had a guided walk around the ‘City of the Flowers’.  As we emerged into the Via dei Calzaiuoli, we were both amused and delighted to see this exuberant bridegroom-to-be, being transported to his wedding by his enthusiastic groomsmen. I think this image looks so much better in monochrome, as the background and other people just seem to fade away, leaving the main characters as the focus of attention.


Thanks Issy of Isadora Art and Photography for asking me to take part in the 5 Day B&W Photo Challenge.

There are only two rules for this challenge:

1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using either a past or recent photo in B&W.
2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.

I’m not sure who has already been nominated for this challenge, and of course it’s entirely voluntary, so today I’m inviting any of my readers who would like to do the challenge, to have a go. Of the three people I’ve already chosen, only one has responded positively, so I hesitate to choose someone else. To quote James Dean, “Remember: Life is short, break the rules (they  were made to be broken).”
