Landscape of Venice from the Rialto Bridge

Venice (Italy). I’m realising that in the last days I’m capturing and posting very popular landscapes: my blog posts are more “postcards”. Well, I’m not too much disappointed by this; photographing around me means capturing whatever stimulates my attention, as I always repeat.

Yesterday, I was in Venice. Crossing the Rialto Bridge I noticed this “typical” scenery: although it was not easy to find the time and the quietness to set my camera properly (it was a very crowded place), I was able to capture this image. As I already said, it’s a postcard – and perhaps you have seen the same image hundreds of times. But I liked it; so: why not sharing it with my followers?

Venice in Chiaroscuro

Venice (Italy). Beyond its typical and “ultra-photographed” landscapes (and I must include myself in this category), photographing around Venice can offer wonderful moments of so called “chiaroscuro”. Moving away from the Gran Canal or the Rialto Bridge and walking along secondary streets, gives the possibility of seeing narrow canals only partially illuminated, The strong contrast given by half scene completely dark and the other one warm and sunny is nice, and makes photos of Venice look like some paintings from the artistic movement called “Macchiaioli”.

The photo here is an example.
