Quiet time before a busy day!
As I previously told you, walking in the streets of Venice by night or very early in the morning is the best time to visit and take photographs. But don’t forget your tripod to manage long exposure shots! I forgot mine so I had to manage by using ledges and benches to put my camera.
There is a small tiny steel ledge along the Rialto bridge where I was able to put my Ricoh GR camera and manage long exposure time (ie 3s). I didn’t find such a trick on San Marco Square and consequently I didn’t take nice photographs of this beautiful place. Too bad 🙁
But I’m quite happy with my shots from Rialto Bridge over the Grand Canal!
By night everything is very quiet and lights are nicely reflecting in the water, almost like an empty or dead city. The only human presence I saw at that time was this fishing boat back in the harbor to unload its cargo.
Next time I’ll show you pictures of the same docks taken 2 hours later… contrasting…
