    Nothing compares to Venice. Like the SWC, Venice has a special place in my heart. So I therefore I just had to get the used X1D when it came as a bargain (here in Corona..) and 2 years warranty on top, to put my FE-lenses on.

    I just wonder, this picture you has taken from Giudecca, but you are rather high up here, and I remember Giudecca as with lower buildings as these at Zattere.., and you are at 70mm and heavy crop I guess, while the canal is rather broad here.
    By the way one see the corner of the wonderful boatyard for Gondolas (Squero di San Trovaso - one of the two remaining old ones), the church behind which got two main-entrences, because it was sponsored by two rich family's, when builded, and they could not agree upon which of them should walk in as first-family, so they had to build another entrence, to arrive syncron and with same status-level (if only the world would suffer from such small problems...),
    and by the bridge behind the boatyard , at the right there is this very cosy and unique little bar "Cantine del Vino gią Schiavi", where you next time has to visit and ask for a glass of Fragolino-bianco, when cold, it taste like heaven, and even it is forbidden, you can just ask for a bottle, take the white, the red is too sweat, there will be no labels on, and the shape of the bottle is like the taste of it...formed in heaven.
    (ps. love your Venice-pictures)

    Hi Thorkil, thank you for the interesting info and congrat. with the X1D!. You are obviously well versed in Venetian local lore. Unfortunately our stop was only for two days, so time was too limited for in-depth exploration this time. As for the image in question: you are right it is taken from a high vantage point, namely the 13th deck of a cruiseship slowly gliding past. No cropping needed I'll make a note of that bar

    Hi Arne, ok, that explains the steeper angle.
    They have been talking for several years to forbid cruise-ships, because they are ruining the foundations placed on wooden poles standing side by side in millions and millions in number.
    And they have as well in decades been talking of limiting the tourism which is increasing every year with increasing numbers of people worldwide who can afford to travel.
    Corona has given the world a much needed but short respite.
    But in a moment, "here we go again...", still speeding up towards the edge...

    John,

    That visit to the Swamp must have been fun. The last image has a special... "Je ne sais quoi". Almost like a painting. Caught my eye whilst browsing. Thanks for posting.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Last Supper. Nikon Z7, Micro-NIKKOR 55mm f/2.8 Ai-S with FTZ adapter.



    About the series.

    Much of my work celebrates light, colour and life. The series ‘Dark Times’ deviates towards the dark, the monochromatic and mortality. The work is being shot during the Covid-19 lockdown here in the UK.

    Having stared death in the face on several occasions my aim is to explore my feelings and confront my fears around the inevitability of mortality and to further explore beauty in decay. Producing the series continues to be a surprisingly therapeutic process.

    No lives are harmed in the making of these images.

    Pablo Picasso: "And then I understood what painting really meant. It's not an aesthetic process; it's a form of magic that interposes itself between us and the hostile universe, a means of seizing power by imposing a form on our terrors as well as on our desires. The day I understood that, I had found my path"
