Homage to the photographer
A little reward to us photography lovers and travelers. It doesn’t happen often that we take part in our own composition, usually we focus on our frame, rule of thirds, foreground and background balance, light conditions and camera settings. But sometimes we can add something to our images just popping into the scene, as I did here, at least partially. I was in my favorite place in Venice after a long morning stroll and decided to pay a little homage to my trusted shoes and to my legs, all essentials when it’s time to go for a fulfilling photo session.
Location: Punta della Dogana, Venice.
What to shot: St. Mark’s Square (North East), San Giorgio Maggiore Island (South East), and a busy section of the venetian lagoon in between.
Ideal time to shot: All day long. At dawn the sky offers often beautiful colors, while later on the day the lagoon get quite busy with all sort of boats. Foggy days offer equally good conditions for taking pictures.
Gear: Wide angles, tripod allowed.
How to get there: Public transport water bus station Salute (line 1).
