Lost cities: Vows to the light

The sunlight dances through the streets,
the shadows reveal their vows
of allegiance to the light

The narrow streets of the beautiful town of Varenna on the borders of Lake Como, Italy. The sun is high in the sky. The bright sunlight gives surprising vistas in this old city.

‘Vows to the light’ is a photo in the gallery ‘Lost cities‘.

I made this photo July 2017 in the city of Varenna, when visiting the vicinity of Lake Como, Italy, on the occasion of participating in an exhibition in the city of Bellano.
