The Old Bridge of Pontremoli by Night

Pontremoli (Italy). Another photo of Pontremoli, and another photo with my new Leica Q camera. Last Saturday I went out for a night photo-walk with the double aim of photographing Pontremoli with few people around, but also to test this camera with low light conditions and therefore at high ISO values.

This is the result… The photo shows the very old bridge “Ponte della Crësa”, which initially was built with wood (1300s) and it was reinforced – as it is today – during the 15th century. In the background, the “Campanone” (Bell Tower) and the Cathedral’s Dome.

What else can I say? The Leica Q performs excellently at full aperture (f/1.7) and high ISO. A great “travel companion” for my next destinations!

Questa foto è bellissima in bianco e nero, a colori non avrebbe avuto lo stesso effetto. Braaaavo

Although we were given a space near the river and bridge in which to create our 2-day masterpieces, a medieval restaurant booth had set up close to us for the festival and did not want our dust while they prepared lunch for the tourists. Do you see what I saw in the lower image?

I’m sorry for the inconvenient. Did you complain with the organization? What do you mean with “do you see what I saw in the lower image”?
