Italy – Stuck in Customs

Walking Home Again

Daily Photo – Walking Home Again

I probably stayed at least four weeks at the amazing Hotel O’lorogio in Venice. It’s a great place and the team there is amazing. Wow, what a fun time! Anyway, there was basically only one way back to the hotel, and it was over a small bridge that gave this view. One evening, I stopped to take my time and capture this scene.

The Keys That Bind Us All

Daily Photo – The Keys That Bind Us All

Every two years there is the Venice Biennale for arts. If you haven’t heard of it, I’ll attempt to explain it here.

It’s sort of like the Olympics for art. Each country sends one artist to decorate a room or home or villa or warehouse however they wish. Some countries do just paintings. others sculptures, others video with music, it’s just all over the place. And you sort of walk from one venue to the next to see what each country has offered into the mix.

This is Japan. They had this lovely room with old ships connected by one super-long red piece of yarn that interconnected throughout the space and were strung through 1,000 keys. The idea was that the sea and boats interconnect the world and hold the keys to connection.

Daily Photo – under cover of darkness

This shot was achieved during a rainstorm over a five minute period and after five glasses of wine. Manarola is one of a handful little towns that are nestled into the Italian coastline here in Cinque Terre.

New Toy

Daily Photo – New Toy

I’ve just bought myself a new drone, the Mavic Mini 3 Pro… in some ways it’s not as good as my existing drone however through an absolutely mad bit of engineering DJI have managed to keep the weight down to 249grams and its tiny size wise too. Still got 4k video, still got decent stills resolution and good range. So a really nice balance and something I can travel with far more easily! Looking forward to sharing content created with it. For now here’s a shot from the good old Phantom 3 Pro when I was in Venice.

The Many Roofs of Venice

Daily Photo – The Many Roofs of Venice

Here’s a view of Venice that you probably haven’t seen before. I grabbed this a number of years ago, back when the life of a quadcopter pilot was far simpler as far as rules and regulations go. Now, even though this was a reasonably straightforward flight with permission, it would probably not be approved. I heard it’s really tough to get any sort of flight approval ther enow. So, it was fortunate that I could get it done and that the universe threw in a nice sky as a bonus.

Small Car Exploration

Daily Photo – Small Car Exploration

Next time you are in a big city, hunt down one of these small car tour things. They are great resources for doing some quick exploration if you’ve never been there before. I’ve done them now in a few places such as here in Rome and also in London (which used old Mini Coopers). Sure, it’s not the most luxurious ride you’ll ever have had but you always find out some great nuggets of info from the company running them and you get to find little places you’d not otherwise see.

A few days ago, I shared an image from Cinque Terre, one of my favorites from there. Here’s a different angle, by drone, which shows more of the surrounding landscape which you don’t tend to see.

When In Europe

One of the absolute highlights of our tour in Europe was the day or so of down time that we had on the Italian coast. So much amazing wine, food and scenery… awesome, friendly people too. 🙂

Thinking about the next drop

Daily Photo – Thinking about the next drop

I’ve some cool projects in the works which have been a lot of fun to work on and some are nearing completion, so it’s time to start thinking about what comes next. Maybe it’s time for a new photography NFT drop… this image from Italy would definitely be in contention for that. (It’s also one of my favorite shots captured on the Hasselblad medium format.)

Fancy Floors

Daily Photo – Fancy Floors

I shared a similar shot from this location in Rome recently, commenting on the ceiling. It was pretty spectacular. It was more of an upward looking shot though, and didn’t show the full grandeur of the place. As you can see from this version the architect/designers went absolutely wild with decoration. An amazing room to explore with so much to take in.
