Sooner or later I will come to the end of my prolific week spent in Venice but for now the photos keep on coming. I’m gratified by the number of half decent pictures I came back with despite walking with crutches due to my disability. Just goes to show that you don’t have to trudge ten miles a day searching for images – If you calm down and wait, they often come to you.
Street photography has always been my first love. These two ladies and their dogs passed me by just as I was stepping out of a shop doorway – no time to adjust any settings, and no second chance. The image is not technically perfect, but I think that adds a feeling of movement and spontaneity that I like. Hope you do too.
As with all my Venice pictures, I used an Olympus mirrorless camera. This time the OMD EM1 with 12-40mm f2.8 lens. I love using Olympus OMD cameras for travel and street photography.
If a bright Olympus marketing person wants to do a feature on how their light-weight gear has allowed me to continue taking pictures since being diagnosed with my disabling illness, do get in touch. I’d love to give you the scoop 😉
Such a wonderful image of my favorite city. And you do an excellent juggling job as you probably had an umbrella too!
Thank you! I’ve just read some of your blog and am looking forward to seeing some more 🙂
