F8, 1/15s, ISO 200, thr range as dynamic as it gets and … this camera is good enough. If there had been a basketball game going on under these conditions, I’d very likely sing a different tune, but as it is – and as what I take pictures of – the OM-D E-M1 Mk II is a perfect camera.
What if I’d frequently went to basketball games? Well, I’d buy a second camera with one long zoom. Nothing else.
Some more saints – and again for me it’s strange to see this mix of modern and very old. But it works.
Is this a cool place? Get your camera and click away 🙂
The Santuario di Montegrisa is not a small church.
It’s architecture is brutally modern, all composed of triangles and naked concrete, and in a way that contrasts interestingly with the paintings, photographs and in general that the place is busy with people, using it as a temple of worship.
It just doesn’t look like that. Take out all the altars, put it in space and call it a warship of the Imperial Fleet. Darth Vader wouldn’t look out of place here 🙂
Ugly? Beautiful? Yes, both, in a way. It’s interesting in any case, and I love how this is not mainstream modern architecture.
When I took the image, I just found that extremely long abbreviation funny. I had no idea what it means.
Well, Google is really good at that. Of course they have it indexed and it means “Ente Regionale per il diritto e le opportunità allo studio universitario”, which Google translates as “Regional body for law and opportunities for university study”.
Hmm … now I do have an idea. Nice door, by the way 🙂
The lantern is not perfectly in focus. With a Micro Four Thirds camera and already at f10 I should have been able to do better, but I might have been distracted by a delicious meal 🙂
Again, Trieste feels very much like home. Why shouldn’t it, you may ask? It’s a two hours drive from Villach. But then, it’s Italy and this is Europe. Everything is smaller here and diversity is the norm. And then once more, this was Austria for a long time. A few posts ahead we’ll see how much 🙂
This is a nice corner in the Old Town, but when we were there, the restaurant was still closed. Maybe next time. Instead we went to Al Petes, a restaurant that I can highly recommend for its very original food.
Another poor guy. I guess you’ll admit this is pretty creative 😀
This is certainly not the most important church in Trieste, but it is probably the most visible 🙂
