Palazzo Grimani di Santa Maria Formosa in Venice, in the Castello district, today the Polo Museale del Veneto and patrimony of the Italian State, was purchased and modernized by Doge Antonio Grimani around the middle of the 1500s. In the photo, the sculpture with the Rape of Ganymede, hanging from the center of the hall called La Tribuna, is a Roman replica of a late Hellenistic model and was placed back in its original position after the restoration of the palace.
It was one of those moments that just clicked. I was cutting the banana for my breakfast. I noticed that the banana and knife handle matched and thought it would be a great photo. So I grabbed some black poster board as a background, moved the set up near a door, set up the shot, and opened the door for lighting. Oh, and then I ate the banana.
One morning, I woke up to find myself on a different adventure to usual. The temperature outside was not only sub-zero but there was a dense fog. Taking my opportunity, I wrapped up warm and stepped into the misty world. This image is taken at a local park in West London, UK. It shows frost covered grass and leaves in the foreground with mist in the background.
Palazzo Grassi, now home to the Pinault collection museum, is one of the most famous Venetian palaces overlooking the Grand Canal. Built in the mid-1700s, it maintains, alongside elements of modernity due to the restorations, original visions such as the fresco on the splendid ceiling.
Springtime in Zurich. Getting into the park early Saturday morning you might see a group of people doing their Qigong exercises. Others take their dog for a walk, or like me, get into the park at the lake in order to take pictures and just enjoy this relaxing peaceful atmosphere.
