Turin, capital of the Piedmont region in Northern Italy, a city that tantalizes all of your senses and always leaves you wanting more. The vibrant colours brought to life in the summer sun which feels wonderful as it rests on your skin, are a feast for the eyes. The textures of the ancient architecture never fail to intrigue you and as you run your hand over the timeworn stones you can't help but wonder about all the hands throughout history that have done the same. The ever present tooting of car horns and chatter of the locals are a strange but pleasant sort of symphony to the ears. The intoxicating aroma of Bicerin (A traditional espresso native to Turin) is guaranteed to tempt you and you simply cannot visit Italy without tasting some authentic Italian cooking, oh and a gelato of course! Here in the Piazza San Carlo, one of Turin's main squares, twin Baroque style churches sit side by side. On the right of the photo, San Carlo Borromeo and on the left, Santa Cristina. I hand blended textures with my original photograph to compliment the historic feel of this classic Italian city scene.
