The Monumento alla Partigiana Veneta monument at Sunset

This is from roughly the same view point of view as the last post of fire works and using a cheap Haida nd 10 stop screw in filter. I was balancing on one of the blocks that are part of the installation and that you can see in the foreground. Everytime a vaporetto passed I was clinging on and hoping I wouldn’t end up it the water.

The Monumento alla Partigiana Veneta monument. Commonly referred to as the ‘La Partigiana’, facing the sea, it is dedicated to the women who fought in the resistance movement against Fascism during the time of the Second World War. It’s a statue of a woman lying down with her hands tied and positioned more or less level with the lagoon’s low tide mark


Fireworks a Redentore festival Venice

The Fireworks at the Redentore have got to be some if the most amazing I have seen. I only had my cheap travel tripod so I had to find a wall that I could place it on. Timer set to 2 second delay on 7d. Another challenge was that I had bought the canon 10 – 18 IS which has IS which I forgot to turn off at the start and the focus is electronic rather than mechanical.

Anyway, kinda happy with the results. First time taking shots of fireworks.
