Venice, if ever a city conveyed a sense of shadows, this is it. A labyrinthine city of narrow passages that come to an unannounced halt at the water’s edge, where the sun only shines fully at noon, a city that revels in its own shadows.
One of WordPress’s many projects for 2011 is the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge in which a theme is proposed and bloggers post an image with their interpretation of it. This is my first entry because this week’s theme, Shadows, grabbed me and I knew just the image it had to be.
This shot was made on a bridge over one of the many canals that wind their way through Venice, Italy. It was shot about noon with a Canon 7D and a Canon 16-35 mm L lens at 16 mm, F/10, 1/200 sec.
