One of the great photo bloggers is Bruno, who covers mostly views of Venice. Just a couple of days ago he blogged about one of the most iconic views of Venice. He also gave some hints about how, when and where to take photographs.
Venice is packed with tourists, and it is hard to find a ‘quiet’ scene. When I was in Venice some years ago, I followed one of Bruno’s advice: be early.
Ponte di Rialto (Rialto Bridge) is one of the landmarks of Venice, most of the time packed with people. One morning around sunrise I decided to have an early walk and went to this bridge – and it was practically empty. The market stalls on both sides of the bridge were still closed. Only one lonely painter was sitting on the stairs, capturing the same scene as me.
