2019-03-21 CANALS IN VENICE

By |2019-03-20T23:06:02+01:00March 21st, 2019|Venice|

Always ready for a snapshot, the constant changing action in Venice demands to be prepared with the camera in your hand. The city is old, worn, morbid, with crumbled plaster, rusty ironed grids, some great restaurants, and some tourist traps, this city is an art-masterpiece in large magnitude.

2019-03-15 BMW X6 IN VENICE

By |2019-03-14T19:05:06+01:00March 15th, 2019|Venice|

The waiting time for the ferry back to Piazza San Marco was about half an hour. Therefore I walked the promenade street on the Lido Venice up and down and made shots of driving cars in the night, which brought unique views of the vehicles.

2019-03-03 NIGHTLY WALK IN VENICE

By |2019-03-02T20:35:22+01:00March 3rd, 2019|Venice|

There are too few films shot in Venice. The scenery would be ideal for mystical conspiracy theories and secret societies. An old order of knights, hidden scrolls and disappeared persons would be the ingredients for a screenplay for a mystical movie in Venice. And then the dark streets and small bridges and the black water of the canals.

2019-02-27 ACTION IN VENICE

By |2019-02-26T20:40:19+01:00February 27th, 2019|Venice|

On a Sunday before noon, the canals got crowded with Gondolas. They line up and bring their passengers through the street canyons. Some Gondolieres become acrobatic, they jump between Gondolas, prepare the empty ones for new drives. Mostly they are dressed in fashionable clothing. I wonder if one falls in the canal from time to time. However, it would be a funny scene.

2019-02-24 THE ITALIAN BAR

By |2019-02-23T14:26:18+01:00February 24th, 2019|Venice|

I love Italian Bars. The Campari bottles on the glass shelves, the Averna bottle beneath the Amaro bottle, the Espresso machines. The display cases with Tramezzini, the bartenders with their Italian style. The interior consists of brass covers and wood, where the ravages of time have taken their toll. You get the right size for the glass of bitter liqueur, not too small and too lean, as you often get served in the rest of Europe. Here in Venice they know it.

2019-02-12  SHOP WINDOW IN VENICE

By |2019-02-11T21:14:37+01:00February 12th, 2019|Venice|

The great thing about Venice is the many details you see as you stroll through the streets. Window panes, house entrances or small bridges, photo-motives where the eye reaches. Here on the photo typical Venice style, masks, wrought iron, and colorful Italian glass.

2018-11-29   PHOTO SHOOTING FROM THE WATER BUS

By |2018-11-29T19:56:03+01:00November 29th, 2018|Venice|

I was standing on the entry platform of the water bus. It was shaky, cold and gloomy, but it didn’t stop me from taking photos of the Canale Grande while driving on it. It is fascinating looking at the traffic, instead of a street there are water canals, instead of cars, there are boats and water buses. They all have their rules; traffic runs smoothly without any traffic jams.

2018-11-18   HARBOR FOR THE GONDOLAS

By |2018-11-17T20:46:00+01:00November 18th, 2018|Venice|

Wooden stakes and jetties build the harbors for the gondolas, on the photo you see the Canale Grande. The gondolas get strapped with ropes, and then they withstand bad weather and broken water.

2018-09-30   PIAZZA SAN MARCO IN THE NIGHT

By |2018-09-28T19:03:38+01:00September 30th, 2018|Venice|

This photo happened in January, my favorite time in Venice. Fewer tourists, moderate cold weather, great for walking around and shooting. Even the Piazza San Marco gets less crowded sooner, and it’s more comfortable taking the pictures you want, without waiting time for getting unwanted people out of the scenery.

2018-08-14   SNAPSHOT OF A CANAL IN VENICE

By |2018-08-13T19:06:00+01:00August 13th, 2018|Venice|

Avoiding dead shot sceneries was one of my intentions when shooting this photo. I tried to get different angles and perspectives on remote locations. This canal was near the Riva Ca di Dio, which is one of the roads directly at sea. So many photo opportunities in Venice.
