photoblogography - Just some stuff about photography


oops, I did it again

in Photography , Tuesday, April 15, 2014

I’m very familiar with the paving attributes of the Road to Hell. And speaking of which, the A4 Autostrada from Milan to Venice could often qualify as a strong contender for that title. Then again, it leads to Venice. And it lead me to Venice, in the company of my significant other, last Sunday. The principal objective was to visit the Franco Fontana retrospective, which was well worth the 3 hour drive, but, well Venice remains Venice, and a bright, breezy April afternoon with a surprisingly low tourist turnout was not an photographical opportunity to be missed.

So here we go. Another small selection of absolutely-definitely-not street photography from Venice. Dedicated to my friends at The Inspired Eye.


Tech footnote: all Olympus E-P3, with ZD 17mm 1.8 or ZD 45mm 1.8




The key thing is to, ah, canalise one's talents in a productive direction....

Nice stuff...but there is a special oomph when color is absent...!

Thanks for the compliment. Personally I react to colour more than tonality. When I do convert to B&W, in a lot of cases it doesn't feel genuine. Sometimes it works, but certainly at the moment I don't feel that it is for me.
Of all of these probably the first is the most obvious contender for B&W. Maybe I'll try it...
