The best thing about Venezia in August? The play of harsh, pitch black shadows and blinding sunlight. You think Im kidding? Im not. Not even a little. Ever since I got my hands on my now beloved Fuji camera Ive come to love chiaroscuro, because once you get darkness and light in a right balance, the end result can be so beautiful. Mind you, Venezia is made for this type of photography all year round. And once you’re ready to press the shutter button all you need is patience to get the right gondolier to glide into your frame. Tourists clad in t-shirts, shorts and flip-flops just wont do this time.
per le strade: of shadows and light
