Going from one end of the Grand Canal to the other, up to the Ponte degli Scalzi, which connects the Venetian districts of Santa Croce and Cannaregio, and was built in 1934 by engineer Eugenio Miozzi, who also designed the Ponte dell’ Accadémia. The design is inspired by the famous Rialto Bridge, and its single arch body is constructed completely from beautiful Istrian white marble. Like the Ponte dell’ Accadémia, the bridge substituted an older bridge built by the Austrians in 1858.
As with my previous upload, I was teetering on the end of a wooden jetty when I shot V1! V2 also shows one of the waterbuses or vaporetti as they are known. Several services are operated, including the full length of the Grand Canal and to the other islands in the lagoon…and they run to time, too!
V1: 1/160 sec, F11, 20mm, ISO 100
V2: 1/125 sec, F11, 13mm, ISO 100
Looks a little better seen large if you have the time.
