2017-03-14 COLORFUL LIGHTNING IN THE NIGHT

By | 2017-03-14T19:59:18+00:00 March 14th, 2017|Venice|

This harmony of lights, water and buildings is unique in Venice. I took this photo from a driving water bus in the evening. Even the noise of higher ISO 12.800 of my Sony A7S looks not so bad because the conditions of the buildings look in the real world a bit like the noise of the photo. 🙂

2017-02-28 VENICE FROM THE WATER BUS

By | 2017-02-28T20:08:54+00:00 February 28th, 2017|Venice|

Although the cruise with the water bus lasted about 45 minutes, I spent the whole time on the deck outdoors. It was very cold and windy, I had my wool gloves on from which I capped the fingertips that I could hold my camera better. It was the Sony A7S, “King of low light”, which I needed for that shots, because to place a tripod was not possible on the water bus. 🙂

2017-02-21 GUINNESS BAR IN VENICE

By | 2017-02-19T20:01:51+00:00 February 21st, 2017|Venice|

I was a bit surprised to see that beer bar in Venice, they offered Irish Guinness, Belgian Leffe, Dutch Heineken… all draft  🙂  And the best thing, it was near our hotel, so before going back to the room, we turned into this bar for card games and some rounds of beer.

2017-02-11 LIGHTED STREET IN VENICE

By | 2017-02-10T21:34:56+00:00 February 11th, 2017|Venice|

In Venice you are really lucky if you get a shot with no people on the street, especially if you do long-term exposures. This motive I tried three times… until it was on the SD-card  🙂  The scene reminds me a bit of a video game like “The Thieve” where you had to creep through such alleyways and hide behind each wall that you won’t be found by a warden.

2017-01-21 LOVELY STREET IN ITALY

By | 2017-01-21T17:00:27+00:00 January 21st, 2017|Venice|

Italian streets are unique, these styles, architecture and colors…  you will only find there. And the culture has been coined for thousands of years, back to the Roman Empire. This scene of Venice was a bit off the tourist zones, still very lovely to watch and go around  🙂

2017-01-11 MORNING SCENE IN VENICE

By | 2017-01-11T21:17:22+00:00 January 11th, 2017|Venice|

January morning in Venice, cold, foggy, grey – an atmosphere which describes winter months. I was the second time in Venice in a January and like it most during this time. Not so many people, you  don’t have too long lines at the different sights, hotels are a bit cheaper and this nice atmosphere.  🙂

2017-01-06 NEAR PIAZZA SAN MARCO

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:18+00:00 January 6th, 2017|Venice|

It was a bit of challenge to take this photo, because even in the begin of January Piazza San Marco and the surroundings are crowded by many tourists and many don’t see or recognize that you are taking photos with a tripod and run through your exposure in all directions. So I had to wait for the specific moment …  I used the Sony FE 10-18 F4 APS-C lens, which works very well on full frame  🙂

2016-12-03 HIGH ISO 65.000 VENICE

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:21+00:00 December 3rd, 2016|Venice|

The circumstances were not the best for taking stills on a swaying water bus, rough sea, night and rain, crowded deck with pressing people, there was only one way to take photos – high ISO. Armed with the king of high ISO, the Sony A7S, it was possible to take shots under really unfriendly photographic conditions. Sony A7S is unbelievable.

2016-10-07 TRAFFIC IN VENICE

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:22+00:00 October 7th, 2016|Venice|

In Venice often streets are replace with waterways and then you have traffic similar to original streets, all kind of boats and ships are driving, but it looks like the left- and right rules are not so strict on the water  🙂

2016-09-03 THE GUGGENHEIMS IN VENICE AND NEW YORK

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:24+00:00 September 3rd, 2016|New York, Venice|

This is real contrast, the style and architecture of the both Guggenheim museums, one in Venice the other in New York (there’s also one in Bilbao, but I never have been there). For me it is a compulsive viewing to visit the Guggenheim museum, because the type of art there corresponds fully to my taste.
