Venezia is built on 120 small islands connected by 400 bridges that cross 150 canals!
The best way to came here is by train, Just outside de station are this big boats called “vaporetos”, they are the public transportation, just like a subway. Take the vaporeto to the Piazza San Marco stop is an excellent way to start the tour, besides taking the vaporeto brings you beautiful views of the city for less money than taking a gondola.
Seeing the piazza for the first time impresses you for his beauty and greatness. In one side you have the Ducal’s Palace, in the other side The Clock’s Tower and finally the Basilica of San Marco with his mosaics cover in gold. Also you will see the real owners of the Piazza, the doves!. Is a great show to see how the people feed them while you listen in the background a Tango played by the orchestras of the cafés.
Another thing that you can’t miss is walk by the little streets to the Rialto Bridge and see the stores of Murano’s crystal, Jeweler’s stores and shops of masks of the carnival of venezia on the way. The view from this bridge is amazing, is a real chaos how the vaporetos, gondolas and boats pass across the great canal. Finally you have to eat a “gelato”(ice cream) while you look at the life of Venezia on a bridge.
Thirty-five degrees. Summer. Lisbon. Seven hills. Worst combination ever! What better to do than to escape the horrible heat of a tropical summer day in Lisbon with its too many hills to a fabulous beach that is just one bridge away? It's enough to just cross the stunning 25th of April Bridge to arrive in an exotic paradise, with great waves and even better people.
There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.
The people of a city, to me, speak volumes about its culture and sense of community. And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down. My search lead to a few establishments that have contributed to making Denver what it is today. In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.
Judging by the design alone, this panoramic camera looks every bit the panoramic camera it says it is. What's special about it is not the fact that it shoots on 120 film, but rather it was handmade at a home workshop.
Halloween is just a little over week away, and if you're on the lookout for a kickin' old-school costume for that party you're throwing (or attending, or if you simply want to dress up to mark the occasion!), you might want to consider these worn by merry Halloween revelers from the '70s.
Last week, I received the strangest thing through my letterbox. It was a postcard with this photograph on 1 side. The photo is of me sitting by the sea whilst I was on vacation last year. But I have literally no idea who took this shot – That’s why I came here, to ask for your help on my search for my mysterious photographer and to try and get to bottom of the riddle they wrote me. Please help me if you can!
I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.
