//Gondolier going around a corner on the Grand Canal. (Canon 30d)
First off, this was taken digitally (yes) from a public boat we were travelling on. Steph held my pants as a leaned waaaay over to avoid getting any obstructions in the frame.
Now, as for the treatment: I was inspired - quite last minute - to try some texture along with the b&w image. The idea is not a new one, but was rekindled on the trip by an article I was reading in Photo Life magazine. Then a couple hours ago, I then came across THIS shot, and was completely inspired to get started.
My plan was to use some water damaged paper for this image, but it was already a last minute venture, so I went with weathered wooden planks I had on hand. They reminded me of Venetian docks anyhow.... I will save the paper idea for later.
