A final trip to Venice, for now. This spot is right next to where yesterday’s image was taken, by Constitution Bridge. I had some amazing light and the tail end of a sunset while I set up here – but two shots in I also had a family to contend with. After dawdling in and out of the scene several times, they all decided to stop in the middle of the frame taking photos of each other. That’s all fair and well…it’s their space as much as mine, but when they took 15 minutes to do so and blatantly kept looking over at me and the camera set up before they proceeded to change position and take more snaps it felt like they were starting to stick around on purpose to simply stand in my way.

On the plus side, I really quite like just standing around looking at beautiful sunsets and blue hours, so I may not have the shots of the best light, but I do have the memories.

You win some, you lose some. I think I’m winning.
