Out on the Town


Night life in wee little Burano, Italy!
It's bustling!

(Again, I wish I had had my tripod with me!)

Nice warn light. Were you here long, Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: Donica says we weren't even there for two hours! It was a real quickie, Mary. I'd definitely go back in a New York minute! Thanks.

I wish I was in the photo. Just looks gorgeous.
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Aussie, 'cuz then I would have met you! smile You would have loved it. Thanks.
Charming scene. It has a very warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Ginnie Hart: The whole place felt very cozy, Red Pen, almost like a movie set! You would love it. Thanks.

The lighting in this shot is fantastic, and the little bit of reflected light in the water draw's me a great deal.
It's also nice to see a bit of day to day life in the picture. Well donewinkwink
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Tracy! You would love this place! Thanks.
The lighting on this one is perfect. I really love it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Gail. I was glad the camera came through for me
You say you didn't have your tripod - you must have braced yourself on something, because this is a fine shot! I can't see any problem with it. I agree with Red Pen; this has such a warm atmosphere...the man with the smile on his face on the right side sets the mood, as does the light.
Ginnie Hart: No, Patrushka. It must have been the Image Stabilizer that worked for me. Sure like that in a camera! That man on the right was on our tour, as were most of the people you see, I'm sure. I'm guessing the town's revenue is based on us tourists! Thanks.

A perfectly beautiful picture, Ginnie. Full of interesting stuff; wonderful lighting; elegantly composed.
Ginnie Hart: That whole place was very interesting, Ray. I could have easily spent more than the 2 hours we were there!!! Thanks.
Ginnie! Wow!
You are amazing at capturing such awesome shots without a tripod!
Bravo!
Ginnie Hart: And you're a sweetheart to say so, KS. Thank you.
ps: thanks for dropping by my pblog and your kind comments!
Ginnie Hart: You are ever so welcome, KS. Your photo today is incredible!

A nice evening-scene (see Red Pen and others) with many Italian elements, for example the "pontinello"; I especially like the 'powerful' typical Italian red(s)in the warm lighting which evoces such a warm 'gezellig' atmosphere. On the right side, I guess, we can see the tourists (from your ship?)!
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Philine. We tourists were everywhere! I'm guessing the town depends on us for their revenue. I can tell you this, I am REALLY falling in love with Italy!!! Thanks.

This brings back memories of a trip a long long time ago. wonderful shot Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I'm so glad I could bring back the memories, Scarlet. I'd go back there tomorrow if I could. smile Thanks. And I'm thinking of you today!
I like the colours Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bernie. So do I. smile

What stabilizer, just a steady hand I think Ginnie, not so modest grin, this picture is phenomenal, the atmosphere is just great, this pictures belongs in a tour guidetongue, just love it!!
Ginnie Hart: You're too kind, Astrid, because that stabilizer is probably a God-send to my aging body! And if you find a tour guide that wants this, please let me know. I'll be eternally grateful! smile Thank you!

Forget about the tripod... it's excellent as it is and it has a great atmosphere that seems to be calling for us. I think I'm gonna start packing... smile
Ginnie Hart: It's those star lights that the tripod gives, you know, Lina. Gotta have the star lights. smile But thank you anyway. You're too kind. I'll start packing with you because I'd go back there in a second!
Wow Ginnie. This is a fantastic shot! The colours and the lighting are wonderful. There are so many things to look at. The two persons on the bridge, the two other ones on the right looking at the shop window......
Great capture
Ginnie Hart: Glad you like it, Richard. It does feel chock full of so many things to see, and that's exactly what it felt like in that moment. Thank you.
What strikes me about is that everybody is looking. I am sure you didn't intend it as a comment on tourism, but personally I would find this intolerable. A little scary that your own homes become the attraction and you end up under scruitiny all day everyday. Not intended as a criticsm Ginnie - just something evoked by your photograph - which is a good one btw ;o)
Ginnie Hart: Oh, don't worry, Mike, because I know exactly what you mean. As a tourist, I OFTEN wonder how people feel when we invade their space. But I cannot tell you HOW MANY native tour guides have said to us that their economy is totally dependent on us and then they thank us profusely for coming. So there you have it. Quite mystifying. But thanks for speaking your mind.
Mixture of light is great, and again the colours are warm and beautiful...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you as always, Aksel!
Nice... Would be a good shot for a tourist brochure or something.
Ginnie Hart: What a nice compliment, David. Thank you.

I must admit that you have done a great job even without your tripod Ginnie. Not a bit of shake visible at 1/10 is just great. Lovely shot!
Ginnie Hart: That's the Image Stabilizer, Thomas, so I guess this makes a good commercial. grin Actually, I wanted the tripod to make star lights, like Martin always likes. Thanks for your comment, as always.
Nice nocturnal shot! All the people were quiet, waiting for your photo! smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! What a nice thought, José-Angel! smile

This is so good, can't understand what you want to do with the tripod. Excellent all round - it does have the air of a night out!
Ginnie Hart: Well, the tripod would be for Martin's star lights, that's all! But thanks anyway, Louis!!
