It's very difficult to shoot anything in
Venice that hasn't been done a billion
times already, and I'm sure this picture
is no exception. But the perspective is
unusual, being a long-focus shot from
the front of a vaporetto towards the
Salute at the bottom end of the Grand
Canal. I could happily spend a week in
Venice just riding up and down the
Grand Canal's ferries - the vaporetti -
and over to the Lido for a stroll on the
Adriatic beaches, and to the islands in
the lagoon for a little culture now and
then. And, perversely, I'd enjoy it all the
more if I didn't have a camera with
me. The demand to use a camera imposes its own limitations on your experience, as it
did in Alaska when we were filming the humpback whales in Glacier Bay. I effectively
missed the experience by having my mind wholly given over to the filming of it, despite
the fact that this particular pod were only yards from the boat we were in. As far as
whales go, only that one opportunity occurred for me; but Venice will be there
(hopefully) whenever I get around to it. Without a camera. Or not.
