So this is the last Italy post.  I don’t know how you feel about it but I’m kind of sad.  It’s how I felt on my last night in Italy.  Maybe one day I can go back there and then my blog posts will be on time and not as many as this time. 😆

Going through the pictures for this last post, I realized how many street style shots I took while in Venice. Maybe because it was different than what I was used to, or maybe because I’m not as done with street photography as I think, but street photography in Italy was fun.  I thought this was a really nice spot to sit and relax.  It also would have been a good spot for when Esther and I were eating lunch.  beard, black and white, canal, DSC RX100III, Italy, men, sitting, Sony, street photography in Italy, Venice, water

This woman reminds me of the woman in the last post who was standing like a superhero.  This woman’s outfit was definitely eye catching.

I know what you’re thinking, but this isn’t the same couple from the last two posts. I can imagine that Venice is a really popular wedding/honeymoon destination. They, or perhaps their photographer, must have really wanted this particular shot to have everybody balancing on such a small space.  I wonder who the guy is behind the photographers.  Is he with the photographers, some random tourist, or a friend or family member of the married couple?  How did he get there anyway? Was there some kind of hidden path?

 

 

How bored do those kids look? 😆 I used to be the same way when I was their age and my mom took too long clothes shopping.

Keep in mind that I had my point and shoot with me in Venice and not the a7Rii, so the shutter (at least in my opinion) was not very fast and so not conducive to street photography.  This woman had that face on for a few seconds, which is why I thought it was kind of funny and had to take her picture.  Hey, get it girl!  You’re in one of the most romantic cities in the world.  No judgment here.

 

 

 

This was taken for the “tilted” category in the group that Esther and I started with a few other people on Flickr.  black and white, canal, couple, DSC RX100II, Italy, pinstripes, Sony, standing, steps, street photography in Italy, tilted, Venice, water

This guy just looked so bad ass with the ladder slung over his shoulder and the cigarette hanging out of the corner of his mouth that I just had to take his picture.

I guess this is how they get deliveries in Venice.  😀 This is kind of cool but I wonder if anyone has ever lost their balance doing that.

 

 

This is what I mean when I said in a previous post that people in Italy seemed more chilled out than people here.  I was trying to be sneaky by pretending to take a picture of something over his head but he knew what was up.  Previous street photography experiences taught me that people get extremely pissy when you take their picture.  This guy not only smiled at me but he also kind of slowed his pace so that I could get a better shot than I would have if he would have continued at his original pace.  We even shared a laugh over my failed attempt at pretending not to take his picture.  How cute are those dogs?beard, dogs, DSC RX100III, green, Italy, leash, man, reflection, smiling, Sony, street photography in Italy, Venice

I love this picture.  You can tell that she is the life of the party just by the way that all of her friends are staring at her.  It reminds me of high school when the popular girl would speak and everyone would listen and think she was the most fascinating girl in the world.black and white, cell phone, cigarette, curls, DSC RX100III, Italy, smiling, smoking, Sony, street photography in Italy, Venice, women

I couldn’t decide whether I liked this picture better in color or black and white.

Does he have the leash looped through the chair?  All I can think of is that scene in Beethoven when Beethoven took off running after the ball and his leash had gotten looped around the couple’s chairs and he dragged them across the lawn and through the neighborhood. 😆

So we’ve finally come to the end of the Italy posts.  I loved my time there and hope to go back one day.  I loved that Esther was with me because it really was fun to explore Italy with a friend.  (Not all of Italy but you know what I mean.)  I loved being able to meet up with Simona and Davide a few times.  I had a great time there and will remember it forever.
