Italy – Stuck in Customs

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.

Daily Photo – Further Back

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

Daily Photo – 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

Carnivale is Back

Daily Photo – Carnivale is Back

I saw on the news that Carnivale is back in Venice following a couple of years gap due to Covid. I loved my time there in 2016, so many amazing costumes and events. Hopefully everyone stays safe and has fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s an image I grabbed while out playing with the Hasselblad H5D. I was curious about what that big sensor would do with some low light shots and HDR… turned out well. ๐Ÿ™‚

These Italians really do know how to do a good ceiling… the arch ain’t half impressive either!

Those folk in the olden days really did know how to do a ceiling. This is one in Italy (in the Vatican if memory serves me correctly) is one of the most spectacular that you’ll find.
