Here, unlike in . . . Venice (1) below, I have no hesitation in preferring the colour images.
In the top picture, taken by a friend, I like not only the waterside composition and the almost mystic quality of the grey light, but I enjoy and appreciate the way my eye is taken from the pink Campari on the grey metallic table to the red writing on the serviette holder and then across the olive green water to the emblems on the ship's red flag.
The result of changing from colour to black and white in the bottom photo is a complete disaster. It fails to capture anything of the excitement of the colourful weekly street market on the Lido.
