“It is the city of mirrors, the city of mirages, at once solid and liquid, at once air and stone.” – Erica Jong
That evening, we were several photographers on the Accademia Bridge shooting the same stretch of the Grand Canal in Venice. It was my second night on that Bridge. This time I wanted to capture the movement of a Vaporetto navigating along the Grand Canal with a long exposure shoot. I made several attempts but most of the time the waves were on the Grand Canal made the Vaporetto sway and its light streaks were zigzagging. Ugly! But not on in this frame: finally the waves on the Grand Canal calmed down and eventually the strips of light were straight.
