I shot this image in 2007 one during an extended work break in Vancouver. We had a good meal in some bar & grill place. I dusted it off for a Getty stock call but the image. I found out that I used to shoot in JPEG (not RAW) and it’s a little soft and therefore not up to get over the Getty quality bar, but I quite like it nevertheless.
We spent a lovely day walking from our cool AirBnB in Hell’s Kitchen to walk the High Line and the from there to the World Trade Centre, City Hall and then we found ourselves at the Brooklyn Bridge. You can’t shoot it without hundreds of people in the shot, so I just went with the flow.
What a lovely place Burano is. It must be awful to be a resident with so many tourists looking in your windows and judging the colour of your house and the state of the decoration, but as a visitor it is such a wonderful place to consider how much happier people would be if houses in other parts of the world were similarly decorated.
A pretty empty St Mark’s square. It was around 6.20am and the fellas that sweep the square and keep it tidy were out working, the pigeons were hoping to find morsels left behind. I don’t think the square is ever completely empty.
I took this around 7am as the sun was just hitting the Doges Palace. I liked the colours reflected in the water. Even at this time of the morning, I had to wait to get the best location on the bridge to get the shot. I also managed to get the waste refuse barge in, rather than a more romantic gondola!
