Of the 400 or so foot bridges spanning the canals of Venice there wasn’t one I could get under to photograph straight up. A boat may have worked, but ensuring a perfectly level camera, free of any camera shake, for a one second exposure, would be really difficult to achieve.
These two arches, spanning opposite buildings, remind me of the hundreds of foot bridges in Venice. Throughout Europe, I’ve seen many arches: single arches, horizontal arches, but never two across a diagonal. This image reflects some of the unique spatial patterns found exclusively in Venice.
